Removing Wood Glue7/24
I want to remove some glue from the surface of rustic wood. I can't sand it. Is there any type of chemical that will dissolve the glue?
Sure would make it easier if we knew what kind of glue. There is an adhesive forum here.
You're right that would help. Titebond wood glue.
Your next question will be: "Which kind of Titebond?"
I soften PVA with a rag and methyl hydrate. Denatured alcohol. Even cured glue turns to a gel that rolls up with rubbing. It leaves no residue. The only caveat is that alcohol will ruin some finishes.
To ask how to remove water based glue amongst a few professionals shows a weakness in problem solving. Then, to ask the question and still be so careless as to not even mention the type of glue.... And thirdly (post #4), at least the class of glue was finally exposed. But, there is a huge difference in the three most common Titebond. And to be even more thorough, Titebond makes about 20 different glues.
Well, it just makes me wonder how it is that the industry can attract people that are unable to think their way out of a paper bag. When we need good, clear problem solvers, people that can challenge themselves, people that enjoy their work and can mentally benefit from it.... Then we end up with someone that has a hard time supplying enough adequate information to ask a basic question. Or is it just lacking the ability to self-reveiw, or self - regulate...enough to be able to catch your own errors and drive your own self-improvement.
Don't sugarcoat it Jeff.
