Hello and thanks in advance for the help.

I need to glue some oak runners in side a jewelry box the runner and the box are already stained will the glue hold?
The box is also made of oak.

Thank you
Jim

The glue should hold fine. You can always test it out with scrap pieces first if it would make you feel better.

Scuff up the finish where your going to glue the runners in for better adhesion.

I guess another important point is that the stain is dry.

It will depend if it was stored in a warm area, if it is totally dry or not.
