I am into my box making phase…I keep reading posts about finishing BEFORE glue-up of the box. But surely if I apply danish oil and then a few coats of wipe on poly before I glue a joint this will decrease the effectiveness of the glue, right? Doesn’t the glue need to contact the wood itself?
As I am writing this it occurs to me that I don’t have to apply finish to the surfaces that will be joined. Huh…is that the answer? Just leave the glue-up surfaces clean and finish the rest?
One last question…if that is the answer…how careful do you have to be NOT to get finish on the glue-up surfaces?
Thanks for helping me through my thought process. :)
