Thread: Glue squeeze-out on OSMO?

  1. #1

    Glue squeeze-out on OSMO?

    I'm building a walnut credenza and am thinking about using epoxy to join the sides to the top/bottom. If I pre-finish the pieces with OSMO Polyx oil, would that make it easy to clean up glue squeeze-out?

    [The reason for using epoxy is for more open time and to avoid wood swelling from glues containing water; my plan is to use tapered sliding dovetails to give good strength and consistent grain orientation from a wood movement point of view - assembling these with PVA seems like it would be very tricky.]

    Any experience you have had with OSMO Polyx together with epoxy would be greatly appreciated!

    No experience with your specific process, but I'd be using masking tape to deal with the majority of any glue-squeeze and keep it off the pre-finished panels as much as possible.
