I need some help. I am making a small box that I plan on putting small legs on. I am going to cut a V in one side of the square leg and glue it on to the box so it hangs below the box about 1 inch. MY question is would epoxy or wood glue work best?
thanks for your help!!!

Both will likely work but I would probably use epoxy is there is any end grain glue up or any gaps in the joint.

There in no end grain and hopefully I will make them with little or no gaps.

Regular glue.

Regular glue works better than most on long grain. If there is not end grain then it has to be long grain. I vote with NiteWalker
