Yep, I remember doing that. It worked just fine too. That is until one
of the first graders decided that it would be fun to slide down head
first, landing on his nose, forhead, chin, etc. The teacher than had
us slide down on sand for an entire resess. The slide was never the
same after that. :-) Yes, the memories this group brings to mind!
I keep a roll of wax paper in the shop for just this reason. For a
high-use permanent jig, perhaps you could laminate or use
melamine-coated PB. Wax works OK but you will have to reapply it
being lazy, I've always put blue masking tape on the jig... makes cleanup easy
and it doesn't throw off the fit if the tape is applied smoothly....

Like some others, I use melamine for my smaller clamping cauls but for
my larger ones, I put a strip of clear packing tape on the
spruceyfirrypineywood's contact face, wrapping around the edges. No
problems at all with yellow glues or poly. I just finished some Ipe
glueups with polyglue and used wax paper to protect the work surface.
That too worked well and didn't stick.
I apply a finish (tung oil or danish oil, whatever is available) to
jigs that may come in contact with glue. After a couple days you can
apply Johnsons Paste Wax, giving added protection from glue. If you
are in a hurry wax paper works well.
