I glued a half-lap joint together. However, when it came down to staining, the
stain was unable to fully penetrate the areas where the excess glue squirted
out. I tried sanding, but that didn't help and the edges where there was excess
glue stained to a much lighter color than the rest of the piece. Is there
anything I can do to get rid of the excess glue?
thank you for the help

Sure is- don't let it get there in the future. Making mistakes is one
way we learn- guess I've learned a lot, overall. (The glue penetrates
into the wood, so you'd have to remove all the wood/glue matrix in the
area for penetrating stain to work. An opaque, non-penetrating stain
might salvage the area, or at least not draw attention to it.)
I've often wondered why Norm Abram doesn't tip people when he
swabs/wipes off excess glue in a visible area about the challenges of
staining the area after.
Live and learn- an enjoyable journey.

'Cuz he's a carpenter. Carpenters don't care about that
fussy stuff. His use of stain and poly is proof of that.
Extra proof of that is in his use of a brad nailah on the
face of nigh onta every project he's ever put out. Other
than that, I'm cool with the Nahm.
