Depends a lot on what I’m doing and where it’s going to end up. If it’s just bare wood, though, I’d just use a good wood glue.

For bare wood, plain yellow wood glue. For anything else, I’ve been liking UHU.

I use CA glue with accelerator:

I also do Hot Glue: https://www.amazon.com/Surebonder-DT-270-Temperature-Gun-Uses-Sticks/dp/B0000BYD4U/ref=as_li_ss_tl?crid=2LKQWMH1E1AL9&dchild=1&keywords=surebonder+high+temp+glue+gun&qid=1598641997&sprefix=surebonder+high++temp,aps,207&sr=8-20&linkCode=sl1&tag=puniprop-20&linkId=3191a7ebca483570fb7a24db881fa436&language=en_US

Long time woodworker here and I typically use tightbond for any woodworking project. Red top for when you need more time to align pieces and blue top when you just want it to grab quick.

I use Elmers clear school glue. which is just a water-based PVA glue. I have many adhesives including traditional wood glue, polyurethane, etc., but clear PVA leaves no visible residue.

I will add I use Tightbond III if the piece is going outdoors.

Always Titebond. The wood fails before my glue joints do.

I’ve got a couple 3m spray glued for quick n dirty things. 45 for low tack and just got super 77 for glueing three sheets of styrofoam together to redo the window plug from my old really really crappy cardboard one for the OG 4” duct to my brand new 8” in-line fan one.
