I don’t have advice about avoiding, but if you are applying stain, dye, or finish and notice a bit of glue is affecting the finish, sometimes you can grab a bit of sandpaper, maybe 180 grit or 220, and sand the wet finish to remove the stain. I’m not sure if this is removing the glue, working the finish / color into the glue or both, but it often works. In fact, I just had to do this tonight, although I was working with water based materials, not oil.
