I made a mission bed and inbetween the slats on the footboard and head board
I have glue leakage. I applied my stain and I can see where the glue was in
between the slats. I have spent the last few hours trying to scrape and
sand in between the slats. How do you guys prevent this problem? Any
Some wipe off the excess when it's still wet using a wet cloth. This works,
but can thin the glue and spread it around resulting it what you're seeing.
If possible, let the squeeze out set up to the point where it's almost, but
not quite dry. Then you can scrape the "chunks" off using a sharp chisel.

What in your answer is going to help the OP? He didn't ask for your
opinion about staining. Is there always "the right color of wood"? If
so why have people been staining or otherwise coloring wood for
centuries? If he decided to "glaze" or tone instead of staining the
glue squeeze out would still be visible, would it not?

as far as cleaning up his current situation, he's on the right track.
scrape, sand, try to blend the stain.
most of the stains on the market are made to either fake up one wood
to look like another or simulate the effects of age. what the hell is
wrong with an honest piece of wood?
a little glue squeezeout- especially down in the wood rather than a
glob on the surface- is a lot less visible under a glaze.
I believe the OP was asking about a solution for glue squeeze out- not
a diatribe against staining. There isn't always "the right color of
wood" hence the reason people have been staining or otherwise coloring
wood for centuries. And even if he decided to "glaze", tone, etc. the
glue squeeze out would still be visible. Not a lot of helpful
information in your post to help the OP.
Hmmm...last time I checked at the lumberyard they were all out of
"Golden Oak" oak and "Revival" oak. Could you point me to a source for
those particular "colors" of wood, my friend?
Imagine wooddorkers having the nerve to "soak" stain into their wood!
The problem with "Glazing" is the colour is only on the service of the
timber, hence any scratches or chips show the original colour.
By "Soaking" staining the raw timber you achieve a penetration of the
applied colour, thus meaning that chips and scratches have to be much
more severe to make themselves noticeable.
I'm not talking about blotch. I'm talking about the difference of
absorption between late wood and early wood. one is generally harder,
darker and less porous (can't remember which is which...). the
lighter, more porous grain absorbs more stain and ends up darker. the
result, to my eye is unnatural and unattractive. YMMV.
