I have just completed gluing up the top for a side board. I have sanded the
piece and it looks like all the glue has been removed from the surface. But
is there any way to test that there is no residual glue before I apply
thanks for your help
That's good, but you also have a chance when you set up with water before
final sanding. Just make sure you use your eye, critically, rather than you
mind, hopefully, and you'll catch the stuff. With a damp, soft surface, it
scrapes pretty well, too.
I haven't used it yet, but today I saw an ad for Titebond that
fluoresces when hit with a black light. For regular glue, wipe the
surface with mineral spirits and look for light areas. I used alcohol
today to check for glue because it was handy. I'm not sure if that's as
good as using mineral spirits, though.
If memory serves me correctly you can buy an additive to put in your
glue instead of buying the special Titebond glue with it already in it.
