The thought of staining it before glue up had never even occurred to me. Could be a big risk big reward type thing. I suppose if I have any glue on top and have to remove I can do some stain touch up. Has anyone stained before gluing up before?

I don’t think I’d let glue get completely hard before trying to scrape it off. I know how I work and I have a feeling I’d get quickly frustrated and mar the surface. It will be an indoor project, so no worry about water and its a pretty small glue up (only two 3’ long edge joints) so I don’t need a crazy amount of working time.

I’ve never used hide glue before. Is that different than the plastic resin that Loren suggested? What would be the reason I’d want to use one of these over Titebond II?
