I prefer the Titebond 2 Premium Wood Glue. It’s very water resistant and has a set time long enough for you to make any adjustments.

Tite Bond III, right now I have a gallon of the TBII but haven’t

made a cutting board with it yet.

Here’s how to read the date code:

Our current lot numbering system is a 10 digit code. The format is: aymmddbat#. The “a” stands for Made in the U.S.A. The “y” is the last digit of the year of manufacture. Digits “mm” represent the month, and “dd” represent the day of the month. The final four digits represent the batch number used for quality control purposes. Therefore, a product with the lot number A104270023 was manufactured on April 27, 2011.

I used DAP/Weldwood plastic resin glue…. the powder mixed with water, same stuff that I use for laminating curves.

I avoid Gorilla Glue (polyurethane)

I prefer Gorilla glue for anything outside, the expansion may be a pain to clean up but I believe its worth it, it fills in any and all voids.

TBII on oak and cherry, and TBIII on walnut and applications where water resistance is beneficial, such as cutting boards.

I just grew weary of wondering why there is more than one kind of titebond in existence at the same time. Went to their website and found a good page explaining all the details…and I still don’t know why they still sell the older stuff.

For the curious:
