Aniline Dye and Glue

I'm thinking of spraying some water based aniline dye on some shelving parts prior to glue up. Should I mask off the areas to be glued or is it OK to just dye the whole thing?

I do this as a matter of routine on door parts with no ill effect. Just be sure to let the dye dry completely.
Also be aware that dye in a spray gun is a quick way to get it onto the wood, but you'll probably have to wipe it to get it to even out. Thats been my experience anyway, YMMV.

That's great - it'll save me a little time on a project that offers slim margins at best. The joints won't be under any great stress either, so I feel pretty good about it now.

I'm actually considering dipping them at this point. I've got a shallow tray that I can use, and I'll just screw a small eye screw into each part for hanging. We'll see.
