The Gorilla glue should have worked but maybe you didn’t dampen the surfaces first ? I would have thought Titebond was not the best option given the naturally high oil content of teak. Also, clamping boards only 3/8” thick requires some care as they could easily flex and compromise the glue joint. You should use some scrap wood strapping to prevent this.
