Great information.
In regards to venneer I recall reading that PVA glue is not recommended because it can “creep” with time and cause the veneer to move. I don’t remember the source.
I have found the urethane glue works well on dovetail joints because the “foam” out is easy to clean up afterward without leaving spots that resist stain like PVA does. I use a small stiff brush to lightly coat one surface and dampen the other surface with a fine mist of water to activate it.

Does anyone have any experience with the hot glue guns (not the melted stick kind)? They are probably more suitable for production type assembly.
