The Family Handyman
Travis Larson says: No more scraping hardened glue off your workbench. Before you set up for gluing, lay a sheet of inexpensive, thin painter’s plastic underneath. Another nifty tip to avoid rockhard glue on your workpiece is to glue it, then wait two hours and scrape off the excess. The glue is still pliable at this stage, so the job is quick and easy.
