Chemical Glue removal


I have a table with a Wilsonart top surface that I built for gluing. Even though I try to keep it clean it has accumulated several years of (mostly) Titebond residue. I have some free time now and would like to remove as much of the residue as possible. This isn't a beauty project, rather I just want to get back to a smooth surface for some upcoming work.
Since this is a large (5 ft x 7 ft) surface it is not possible to submerge it is a solvent. Is there any technique and/or solvent that will at least soften the dried Titebond other than vinegar or more concentrated acetic acid that I can use?

Try saturating the glue with vinegar and or using a cabinet scraper to remove. I get glue on my TS extension all the time and use a cabinet scraper to remove it. Assuming the Titebond glue is PVA, vinegar will soften it.

Plain ol' H20 (water) will do the trick for either Titebond Original or the Titebond-II formula. Warm water will soften it a little quicker, just make a dam out of wet paper towels around the edge of the table and flood the area with water, wait about an hour or two and it will clean right off.
