Topic tags/keywords: question

Will primer and an eventual coat or two of paint sufficiently cover less than completely removed glue spots, or is it like stain and finish, where even the most minor residue will cause a noticeable blemish? Thanks.

If its a solid color paint and the residue isnt raised above the grain of the wood it should cover OK.

Assuming Titebond or similar and a good quality primer, I think you’ll be okay.

Yah, it’s titebond II, and I still plan on doing some scraping and sanding, but the design of the project has many corners and such and I’m trying to decide to exactly what level this should be done. Thanks for the input.
