I have a staff that I started years ago, in fact, the first staff I ever tried to create, but it's for me. At the time, I had no idea what type of adhesives to use for this style of work, but I knew that I wanted small stones that some glues might not adhere to when placed on wood.

I studied all the glue at our local ACE Hardware, and I chose Gorilla Glue.....it was somewhat new, and it said it could bond anything.

Well, it bonded alright...BUT, though I used very little, the glue itself raised like dough before baking.......and......IT LOOKS UGLY!

Beyond chiseling each stone off the wood and metal that it's adhered to, and then reworking the damaged wood and paint (which will have to be done to some extent anyway), how can this be most easily and safely removed...maybe even saving some of the semi-precious stones that I used?

I don't even want to load a photo of it until it is DONE RIGHT - to my standards!
