Corner squeeze-out: contain it

Corner squeeze-out: contain it

For best protection, seal off adjoining joint surfaces from squeeze-out with masking tape. Apply the tape during the dry-fitting, taking care not to get the tape so close to the edge that it gets pinched into the joint, ruining its fit. After gluing-up the joint, scoop up any squeeze-out, then peel up the tape to complete the cleanup.
