gluing a joint
 
I'm making a frame for a mirror, I don't want to stain and poly after the frame is installed,therefore what I'd like to do is stain and poly everything before I clamp and glue the frame on the mirror. my question is whether or not the "titebond" will make a good solid bond between pieces of wood that have stain and poly on them.

tnx,

just tape off the areas where the glue will be when you finish the frame so the glue can grab.

Wood glue might bond stained wood. I doubt you'll get much bond at all on poly'd wood. There may be some other types of glue you could use, tho. Maybe gorilla glue? Never tried it.

Can you biscuit the corners first?

that would be the way to go Bud if the joint was larger but since it's a pretty small frame it wouldn't be practical. anyway, I haven't got the right tools. I like the idea of just taping the areas to be glued.

tnx,

Miter joints are tough.
This is a great idea:

Doweling kits are really inexpensive. It seems like the one I bought (before I got biscuit joiner) was about 10 bucks. It came with the center markers, a drill bit and dowels. Can't find that set now, but this is the idea:

Not even sure how it works.

tnx,

You don't stain and poly where the glue is going to go. If you did already, sand it off.
Along with the glue, you should nail the corners.
