What can I use to keep excess carpenter's glue from sticking to something?
I've got to glue and clamp something, and there will be overflow of glue
that I don't want sticking to the wooden clamps. Does waxpaper work?
I'm suspecting he hadn't thought of it specifically and is somewhat
unexperienced...as someone else noted, the clamp in the location where
squeezeout would be expected doesn't sound like clamping in the right
location as well as excessive glue besides...
Yep, quite nicely...
A good waxing of the clamps will work as well.
But, I'd work hard to try to eliminate/minimize squeeze out from a place
I'm clamping as a matter of practice if at all practical...

You can wax your clamps before using them. Any wax will do, furniture
bees or car wax. Or, consider applying a coat of varnish or
polyurethane to the wooden clamps. Don't go overboard with the
glue--a small amount of squeeze-out is what you want.
It is kind of hard to imagine the glue coming in contact with the
clamps..it seems that would indicate the use of way too much glue. If
possible, just apply glue and press the pieces together by hand first to
express the excess glue and wipe it off well with a damp cloth. If not
cleaned off well, it can interfere with stain and/or final finish.
Slightly OT, but when working with epoxy, coat anything you don't want
stuck with Vaseline.
e.g. put Vaseline on the threads of bolt to hold a nut in place, then
epoxy the nut where you want it. The bolt will spin right out after
the epoxy sets.
