Default Wax to prevent glue from sticking

Say you're gluing up some wood and you're using a wooden spacer to help hold the pieces in line. But you don't want the spacer to get glued in with the rest. What kind of wax do you apply to it? Can someone provide a link?

Thanks,
Kevin

Wouldn't wax paper do the job? Between the project and the spacer I mean.

I agree with Dan. Wax paper is what I use. Including for applying countertop laminate.
You would want to be careful about using wax because it can interfere with applying finishes later unless you get any residue sanded completely off.

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.

I've used Johnson's paste wax on the spacers I made for my candy dispensers. I've had no problem with it. Just make sure to wipe all the excess wax off of the spacers. It's the same wax I use to wax my table saw top with.

A person can never have too many tools!

I never thought to use wax paper. Sounds easy enough to wrap my spacer in wax paper.

Wax paper is also handy for keeping glue drip off of clamp shafts. I cut a roll in two on my bandsaw as a half-width is what I found useful most often.

Check out that new high-tech cordless router.. wireless and no recharging required!!

What I do. Never thought to cut the roll in two. We were out of wax paper in the kitchen the other day, and I completely forgot I have a roll in the shed.

Cheers,
Roger
