Scraping off excess glue
Duration: 17:05

It’s good to have a little squeeze out from glue joints. It shows you that you had plenty of glue in the joint. The problem is dealing with squeeze out. If you don’t do it correctly, you’ll see dots in your finish that are the result of glue residue. The solution is two-fold, preemptively deal with it by getting things in place to prevent the squeeze out from getting away from you. Or deal with it later. Just how much later depends on what kind of glue you’re using. We’ll help you with that, and with making sure your projects don’t have finishing defects caused by errant glue.
