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
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.
