Default Glue in End Grain Box Joints

I'm making a lot of tissue boxes for the wife. I'm using my Ultra to speed things along. My big problem now is the glue ups. I get a bit of glue (titebond/titebond extenze ) here and there. On the side grain I wipe it off with a damp rag. No problem. Gone. However, on the end grain. no amount of wiping gets it off. I scrape and sand but it still blocks the finish (Antique Oil).

Any tricks you'd care to share?

Thanks,
Burt

Hi Burt

Mix up some White Vinegar and some bottle water in a spray bottle, spray the 50/50 mix on the over flow and wipe it off with a clean rag.. don't use the rag over and over use a clean one..

Perhaps if you cut the pins a little long and then trim/sand them flush?

Hi

The end grain is like little straws and will soaked the glue up, it must be removed b/4 it can seal the wood..once dry that's it.. it will not take on any finish..

Prefinish the end grain before you glue up. That will create a seal to help prevent the glue from soaking in.
