Only experience with poly is gluing brass tube to pen blanks and stave construction turned box. Only problem with it has been shelf life. Over at IAP (pen turning), was sent to different test sites where poly receive poor marks. I prefer epoxy & poly glues over CA glue for pen tube glue up!

I agree with not trying to glue wet wood, since don’t know wood MC would expect that and cedar oil a problem too! Unless dealing with freshly cut cedar tree, cedar dries fast and normally defect free. So letting the boards hang out for a week or two to reach EMC won’t hurt.

I still recommend wiping down glue edge with acetone regardless of the glue going to use!
