Glue clean-up

4020 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.

on 90 degree miters, I always use tape. On the outside, I try to wipe up with a damp cloth right away and I check it again about a half hour in to it. I would use the tape on the outside but I'm trying to move from super novice to scary novice.
