      OK, not specifically medieval, but I've been building cabinets for a
      friend whose house burnt down, and has had to move into a gutted-out
      trailer...

      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.
