Glue clean-up

4022 Views 9 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  Harddog Wood
It seems that one topic that is never discussed in woodworking books or articles is the best way to clean up glue squeeze-out from glue-ups (especially inside corners). Is it better to clean the glue out wet with a wet rag (and risk staining), wait till it skins over, or scraping after it has dried. Or is the best approach to tape the inside corners. I have tried all these approaches and would like some input on the best way that others have found.

Denatured alchohol works as well, without the Ph problem.

Shop tip for epoxies, West System expoxy, maybe others, will clean up with viniger just as well as anything. This is cheaper , non-flammable, non-toxic, and nicer on hands. Make sure that it will not react with the wood do to its PH.
