ASK NORM

The best way to caulk clapboards, seal basements, and clean marble

On your shows, I’ve noticed that sometimes you use a sponge to remove excess woodworking glue but other times you let the glue dry before scraping the excess off. How do you decide what to do? ANITA HARTLEY, BERWYN, PA. I’ve been using polyurethane glue a lot in my shop and I think it’s great except that it’s awfully hard to get off my hands. Any suggestions? J. VERN HERRING, CORPUS CHRISTI, TEX.
