No-mar glue scraper
Rather than designate one of my good chisels as a glue scraper, I purchased an inexpensive set of automotive body chisels for the job (no. AC833, 877-238-2623, advanceautoparts.com). They’re made of a hard plastic, so glue doesn’t stick to them, they reduce the likelihood of accidentally gouging
the wood, and they clean up easily with water.
