Hey guys! In your experience, what has been the best way to remove dried glue on plywood? I haven’t tried anything yet. Its really a pretty thin layer that squeezed out, i just dont want to damage the veneer.

Thanks in advance guys!

What kind of glue? PVA (careful application of heat, or sanding) CA ( careful sanding) Urethane (soak in mineral spirits) Hide glue (application of heat) . Careful sanding or scraping with very sharp card can take care of most.

Tite bond I or II is a pva glue. A heat gun can help. Or careful sanding.

I’d use a card scraper, but be careful to just hit the glue and not the veneer. Don’t bend the card too much and apply hard pressure. Bend it a little bit and take it easy

With thin veneered plywood it can be a little scary. Hide glue, either hot or liquid would have solved the problem as it can be removed with cold water and a scrubbing pad and will not affect your finish. With PVA, I guess I’d cross my fingers and scrape with a razor blade. ...... but I’m really a hide glue guy.

I’m still new to woodworking and learning. I didn’t know there were so many different kinds of glue even.

Combine the card scraper with a heat gun. Soften the PVA glue and scrap it off. Then finely sand so you can still stain if needed. It may cause you an issue if you are staining.
