Glue squeeze out can be an annoying problem when it happens in the corners of your woodworking project. Spike Carlsen teaches you two easy tricks that you can use to protect your piece. The first involves simply applying masking tape to the edges where glue might squeeze out, so the glue squeezes onto the tape rather than the wood. The second involves running the end of a soda straw along the line of glue so that excess glue ends up inside the straw.
