Begin by lightly dampening the wood with a spray bottle. This opens up the pores of the wood and speeds the curing of the glue. Spread a moderate amount of glue into the joint. (This stuff foams to three times its original volume).
After three to four hours, the glue will be fully cured. The hardened foam can then be easily removed with a chisel or scraper.
