To avoid the hassle of cleaning and scraping dried glue when edge-gluing boards together, press masking tape along both edges of the boards before putting on the glue. This way, the glue will ooze out onto the tape instead of the wood when you tighten the clamps. Make sure you push the masking tape ﬁrmly onto the surface with a putty knife or similar tool, or the glue will just leak under the tape anyway.
