Hello, I was just wondering if anyone had any idea on how long I have to wait to route the profile on a frame after glueing in the mitre keys. I used Titebond 1, which says I should wait 24 hours before stressing the joint, but because this isn’t a huge joint I was hoping I could cut that time down some. I am working on a tight deadline, so it would be great if I could get a coat of finish on it tonight. Thanks!

I’ve done some heavy work on joints after 2 hours in the clamps with no issues. This includes sanding the box sides, routing 3/4” roundovers on the corners and 1/2” roundovers on the edges and cutting some rabbets on the inside of the boxes.
