This is a heads-up for a tan to light chocolate toned glue. Elmer’s Carpenter’s Wood Glue Max. Dries darker than the bottle shows. Almost perfect for cherry-toned woods. It’s stainable & waterproof. Have not tested the S & Wp but the darker, dry color works for me on glue ups. Hope this will help someone. Hate those yellow squeeze-outs.

That’s an advantage to using water based aniline dyes. You can put some yellow or white glue in a smaller container and tint it with the dye you’re using on that particular piece.

The wood glue max is a good glue. It’s elmer’s direct competitor to TBIII since it’s type 1 water proof and has a longer open time. I just got a bottle and will be trying it out today.

Have also used Elmer’s for some years, but not the colored glue, thanks for the tip!
