Ebony glues with a white or yellow glue, but I can’t say it will work
with Titebond 3 because I haven’t used it. I’d use white glue
myself as it has a longer open time than yellow and it dries more
brittle which makes it less prone to creep.

If you need a waterproof joint… well, do you?

Are you familiar with urea formaldehyde glues? You should learn about
them if you are doing laminate work, veneering, or working with

I only use CA where I need a real fast grab in non-structural applications –
it is brittle when dry. CA is great for “flash filling” gaps and fixing problems
during finishing but as a glue for joinery and wood-to-wood lamination
I wouldn’t use it myself. I use it to fix tear-out and splintering of bent
wood parts where clamping is impractical when working on guitars
