Put the skewer to glue squeeze-out

WOOD - - SHOP TIPS - —Dan Martin, Galena, Ohio

Re­mov­ing ex­cess glue from in­side cor­ners can be a chal­lenge. I used to do the job with a putty knife, but that some­times led to smear­ing the glue or scratch­ing the wood. Then I hit upon the idea of us­ing bam­boo skew­ers, avail­able at gro­cery stores. Sim­ply use the skewer in con­junc­tion with a pa­per towel to get into the cor­ner with­out do­ing any dam­age. To pre­vent smear­ing, fre­quently re­wrap the towel around the skewer to a clean sec­tion of towel.
