removing dried up carpenters' glue
I have an antique cabinet that I bought several years ago with a puddle of what I'm guessing to be dried up carpenter's glue in the bottom. It's inside where it doesn't show, but I'm now wanting to sell it and I think removing the glue would facilitate that.
I always try water first, and water does v-e-r-y s-l-o-w-l-y soften the glue to the point where it can be removed, but it's still difficult, and did I mention slow? Chipping it up with a chisel is also an option (although it chips the wood, that's better than the glue), but it's very awkward to work at the back of the bottom shelf.
Is there a better way? I have both heat gun and and and IR stripping tool, would either of these work?
Thanks for any assistance,
