In Response To: Re: Removing antique glue (James Schooley)

If in fact the glue is a plastic resin glue, a sharp chisel and attention to detail, that is leaving the wood and just removing the glue will be necessary. However, if it is hide glue, warm water and a rag will dissolve and clean it, without damage to the joints.. Allow to dry overnight before regluing. Franklin's cold hide glue is ok, but takes days to actually dry, hot hide glue is the best. As for the wood, boiled linseed oil and mineral spirits 50/50 solution, will bring back the life to the color that is already there, wipe it on and dry it off. Let it dry for a day and then wax it, with a furniture paste wax.
