Rainy day here, work is really sloooow and my mind is just wandering. Got to thinking about cabinet cases with fixed shelving inside. I would want to spray all the panels before assembly, but once sprayed, the areas where the glue joints will be would be sealed by paint. Do most just try to avoid spraying the areas/joints that will have glue and not worry with some overspray? Seems like taping off those areas would have so so results. What method would you use? Thanks

I have not run into issues with glue not working with painted or stained surfaces. Going the other direction is the problem, especially in the case of stains.

When I paint, I glue first. When I stain, I stain first.
