Nice post Alaskaguy.

I use yellow wood glue, I don’t overthink it. Sometimes I buy the generic from Woodcraft, sometimes other brands, it just depends on where I am. I’ve used white glue a few times when I’ve run out. Sometimes I pour the glue into a small container and add a few drops of water to extend the open time, I’ve had no negative results from this.

Once on some cabinets I used construction adhesive and later had to take the cabinets apart. They were simple butt joints but the plywood broke before the glue gave, tough stuff.
