Instead of trying to sand or chisel out excess dried glue, we scrub it out with warm water while it is still wet.
Here George is wetsanding oil coat number 2 on a cherry Morris Chair. Wetsanding is sanding with very fine sanding paper with the oil - the paper is wet. Using 400 grit paper this technique produces a silky smooth surface.
