    You can try warming it up with a hair dryer and scrape it.
  • Hi, this is from eHow:
    Vinegar has a wide variety of uses including dissolving wood glue. Because of its acidic properties, undiluted vinegar on a rag works to dissolve wood glue. If the glue is exceptionally stubborn, heat the vinegar in the microwave or on a stovetop. Apply the warm vinegar to the wood glue, using a rag or old towel.
  • If you have a palm sander you might try sanding it off.
