Default Wood Glue

if you get glue on the face of something you are going to stain, if you wipe it off and sand will the stain take, thanks

The stain may take but not in the same way that the wood will where there was no glue unless you sand enough to get past it. The wet cloth dilutes the glue and drives some of it into the wood pores which at least partially fills them. The one exception is a water soluble glue like Lee Valley's fish glue which will wipe almost completely off. I like to use it when I repair things like a split in the grain at an edge.

Sometimes it is advisable to pre-finish the wood before you glue but that can be tricky too because if you are using an oil base stain then you don't want to get it where the glue is going or it may interfere with the glue bonding properly.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

For picture frames, I pre finish because it is impossible to keep the glue off the face. It takes a lot of sanding to get that glue off and get down the bare wood. I apply it carefully and away from the face. After assembly, I usually use wipe on poly to give it the gloss I like. To strengthen miter corners, I generally use splines.

is that why it's better to just leave the squeeze out, then remove it when dried with a chisel.

Yes. It affects a much smaller area.

If it's possible you can use blue painters tape and let the squeeze out get on it.

Test before applying the finish to the whole thing.
