          When gluing an exposed surface, first coat nice finishes with vaseline
          or rub with soap. The glue won't stick, and any excess that dries
          outside the joint will be easier to remove without damaging the
          finish.

          When sealing a "blind split" (one that doesn't separate the piece into
          two complete pieces), first clamp the piece tight, then apply a
          liberal trail of glue along the split (on all sides, continuously),
          then release the clamps. The suction of the opening split will pull
          glue into the crack. Reclamp and clean. (And prep beforehand with
          vaseline/soap, as mentioned above, if the finish is delicate.)

          FWIW.
