Ha, speaking of Epoxy being messy. I was using it yesterday for the first time in a LONG time to fill some gaps and cracks in a piece of wood and forgot to use gloves. OMG. Talk about a mess! I used a gel type and I got it ALL OVER my right hand. I wasn’t too concerned, because I just was going to wipe it off and use some solvent for the rest, but guess what? When it says it dries in 5 minutes that means that one second it is goopy and the next second your fingers are glued together like superglue!

I took me about 30 minutes and a lot of toxic Acetone to get it off. Lesson Learned!

As far as the furniture goes, like Dallas said you have to clean off the old glue. Traditional wood glue will not adhere to old glue. Getting it all out of those holes can be almost impossible, which might be a good reason to use Epoxy which will adhered if there is some old glue residue. You still have to clean as much of the old glue out as possible.
