I know that prevention is the best cure, but despite my best efforts, occasionally I will have some glue marks on a joint or something that becomes very obvious when applying stain.
A friend recently took a piece he built for the church to a cabinet shop to have it professionally stained and finished. The cabinet maker remarked that there were a few glue spots, but he took care of them. When we asked how he dealt with it, he said he has a mixture he concocted over the years that helps disolve the glue. He would not divulged his secret.
Have any of you heard of something like this? A cabinet scraper is what I have found most effective on solid wood, but plywood is a challenge since the laminate is so thin. Someone mentioned warm white vinegar does a decent job.
How do you approach cleaning up cured glue that you had missed?
