Wax the pipes no marks on wood or giue sticking
Hi Colin what is an air nail
Colin, I see some woodworkers using salt on the glue joints, what is your thoughts on this?
I have the same scraper and would like to know how to sharpen the blade. Thanks
I use wax paper, keeps the glue from sticking to my wood screw clamps
You’re fun 🙂
Thanks for sharing your knowledge!
I’m really enjoying your Tips and Tricks series, Colin. Some of them I’ve seen, but there’s always one or two that I haven’t. Thanks for all.
You have a great way of presenting and you speak well. Thanks for all the great help.
Hi Colin. When removing glue with an old chisel, there are two points that were missed: first, you want to remove the glue once it "skin’s over" – when it’s rubbery but not fully dried (which gets hard enough with TiteBond III to nick a planer blade). Second, you have to use the chisel bevel-side down, and not up. This keeps the chisel from gouging a grove as you described. The scraper is a good idea, though.
To help keep glue parts from sliding against each other, put just a very tiny amount of table salt in the glue before putting the pieces together. It creates just enough grit to keep the pieces from sliding, and as long as you don’t put too much it, it won’t interfere with the strength of the bond.
Oh by the way. . . I’ve been watching you for about 2 plus years Thanks for the Education. "A wood butcher from way back."
once again a very useful tutorial. I know now the cause of those stains i discovered after some glueing. Thanks again and again Colin.
Coln, I noticed you left out a Very Smart Tip when You are using the Two Part Epoxy… You mix on a pad of sticky note!!! Done trash the sheet used and you are ready for the next Epoxy Job.
Like your quick tips/hacks series, thanks Colin
Bar clamps: don’t mess with plastic wrap, just put a piece of blue masking tape on.
Hey Colin, nice video as always. Just one question, I have a problem when I glue up a cross joint, after I have removed the excess and it is dry I get a stain on the wood which is super hard to remove by sanding, specially inside a cabinet, I guess pre-finish would help, but do you think it might be the type of glue? Or do you have any other tip? Thanks
In this video you said you don’t like using a chisel to scrape dried glue from boards but earlier in a video I watched you had created a jig to hold a chisel for scraping off dried glue. I have heard both ways so I am not sure which is best?
Love the way he explains things legend
I’ve watched a lot of Colin’s videos, but this is one of his best. Great tips that everyone can use!
Excess glue = cardscraper job if already dry.
I bonded with this video
great advice,easy to follow and good examples of why and how! thanks
End grain would be better with a scarf joint, more surface area. 😉
Remove the glue from a lamination just after it has congealed but not fully hardened, around twenty minutes. That way you can avoid pulling up the wood and avoid smearing it everywhere.
Thanks for the glue up tips Colin
Pre-glue works really well for MDF edges too. Night-and-day difference on a particular project I was working on.
Thanks for the hacks Colin.
I have two 9 1/2’ x 3 1/2’ large panels, it’s 8/4 red oak, I used a Makita belt sander with a sanding square and flattened both panels, but I noticed that there is still glued stains in the glue joints. What would be the best way to remove this dried glue? I plan on using an orbital sander and sanding to 150, because I will be staining a dark walnut, but I know if I do not get rid of this glue in the joints, it will be a disaster when I add the stain. Will the orbital sander get rid of the glue stains in the joints? Or is there another method I should use?
Thanks Colin, great tips. Air nail? Is that just pressing the trigger with no nails or brads loaded?
Stains are the least of my concerns with gluing. For me gluing is an exercise in futility. I don’t know that I’ve ever successfully glued anything together. I need an education on the subject. There should probably be a whole class dedicated to it. Which types of glue work on which types of materials. What’s the most you can do but also what’s the VERY least you need to do to make sure a bond holds.
I use galvanized pipes which don’t stain
these thing are really good advice especially our younger beginners great work
Get a plastic straw from fastfood place, "sharpen it" to a point and pull out wet glue from 90 degree joints then wipe with damp sanding foam block
If I’m stack gluing,I put table salt on the glued parts.works pretty well
Thanks a lot. Useful stuff
Enjoy your tips and tricks, thanks for sharing.
Thanks Colin, i enjoy your video tips.
Don’t forget about adding salt to keep parts from sliding on the glue.
I love your videos friend, in new to it and learn a lot from you, thank you !
Oh no, I have dried glue on the corner of shelves,, I am trying to sand it out. I am afraid glue will affect my staining. Suggestions
Colin is a Canadian genious
Good tips Colin. How do you clean and sharpen your scraper?

1- I use saran wrap, talking about glue, what glue do you know of that accepts stain and finish?
I love your tips Colin, Thank you for sharing them with me. 👍
Hi Colin. I pay special attention to wiping and scraping away the excess glue for panel glue-ups. My problem is that I always see glue marks once I apply wood stain. Obviously the glue does not adhere to the glue so it looks unsightly once the stain is applied. Sanding might be the only solution but it is difficult to know how much sanding as the glue blends into pine wood. Any tips will be appreciated.
Nice tips Colin & always scrape with the grain.
Thanks for the tips, Colin!!! Keep em coming!!!
Or scrape the glue by pulling the chisel backwards while the Bevil is pointing away from the pulling direction
