same prob here. after research, I allowed glue to dry well. then I was able to very, very carefully remove with straight razor. you are not really scrapping as much as getting razor under the glue glob and lifting if off table. IMHO, the larger glob was easier than the smaller two.

On the wife's high luster dining room table, glue did not harm the finish and neither did I harm finish with razor. a stiff shot of bourbon was in due order following a successful operation.

I have high quality mahogany furniture that accidentally got super glue (Gorilla Glue) smeared on it as I was trying to glue a piece that came off in transportation. Any suggestions on how I can clean those stains (glue marks)? Can I use Oops or Goo-Gone on it?




Gorilla Glue On Mahogany Furniture

Hello this is Nadine from The Gorilla Glue Company. I just happened upon your question and thought that I would respond. The recommended way to get cured Gorilla Glue from a work piece is with a chisel, scraper or sandpaper. Hope this helps. If you need more information feel free to visit the web site at: (09/12/2008)

Gorilla Glue On Mahogany Furniture

Nadine is correct. Since the glue has cured (hardened) that's the only way you can remove it. In the future, if you need to use glue on good wood furniture, use Elmer's Wood glue or carpenter's glue with clamps, if necessary, but never Crazy Glue or Monster Glue. Any mistakes made with carpenter's glue can be easily removed. I learned this from my Dad who was a cabinet maker. Good luck. (09/15/2008)
