Often we need to attach other materials to wood other than just more wood.
There are so many choices of adhesives on the market, at a wide price level.
Here is a site that has an easy way to find the best choice.

I found that it often gives me choices I didnt even know existed.
Perhaps you can benefit from it too.

Hmmm. I use West System epoxy for most applications and was surprised that it wasn’t listed for wood+wood.
To be fair, I use oily woods which need a little extra umph. For oak, maple, or mahogany I agree that carpenter’s glue is a better fit and certainly less expensive. I’ve never heard of LePage products. Is that like a Titebond?

I found this so called database to be severely lacking in options and objectivity. :)
