Hi Brett—Franklin makes a wood glue which will give you what you want and it’s in the Titebond family.

Here is a link to the very product.

Franklin is a pretty friendly outfit to work with; if you give them a call you’ll get the straight scoop.

Similarly, calls to West System and or System Three will hook you up with a specific epoxy product for that application.

BTW, diluting regular Titebond is ok up to about 10%. It improves spreadabililty but does not increase open time.

I have not built a roubo bench but it seems to me that it can be glued up in sub assemblies in such a way that you would not have to have an octo-armed assistant to do a one-time glue-o-rama.

Contrary input is welcomed of course.
