I used Gorilla Glue Wood glue, and my reference book said to refrain from wiping the glue, as it will be harder to get the glue out of the grain. So, I left every last bit of glue on there, until it dried. At first, I tried sanding using 60 grit, with little success. So, I started hand planing it, which evened up a lot of the uneven ridges, but I still can't get all of the glue off. I picked up a scraper today during lunch, and will try and scrap off the rest of the glue, before I go back to the sander. Above, when I mentioned I was going to pick up 120 and 100 grit, i meant I was going for 40 grit, but the store only had 60 and 80, which I all ready have. I'm sitting here at work, and I think some cedar dust just fell from my eye brow! haha
Good luck with your sanding!!!
