The 5 stickiest wood glue questions with expert answers
Can I take a dry glued joint apart?
Joints made using white and yellow wood glues are most easily taken apart by applying heat. Use a heat gun (photo at right) on the joint line to soften the glue, and the joint will open with slow, steady pressure. Wood has good insulative properties, and it may take awhile, so be careful not to damage projects with the intense heat.
