    I'm going to answer this as if I was doing segmented turning.

    Titebond 1 because it's the strongest of the three.

    If I need a longer open time, I use white glue (as in Elmer's)

    Larry,

    I use the original Titebond. In fact, I just bought another bottle this week because I'm about out and I'm building cabinets. Yeah, I have less working time but I've had such good luck with it....why try anything else.

    What type of glue? and why?

    I use Titebond II for most projects and either Elmer's (both white and yellow) or Gorrilla for others. I don't do all that much glue-ups yet and I'm still learning.

    For the past few years I have generally used the 2002GF from Lee Valley.
    I also picked up some Titebond2 last fall, and have started using that more often.

    I don't glue enough -- hobbiest! -- to have that many bottles on the go. In fact I usually write the date on the bottle in marker when I buy it so I can judge how old it gets -- usually goes 12-16months before I'm done.
    There's usually more than one way to do it...

    Got 'er done, Larry.

    Of the yellow glues, I use Titebond II. I was buying it by the gallon when I was making a lot of cutting boards, but I've not done a lot of flat work for a while, so the last gallon has lasted me well over a year. (With a lot still in the bottle.)

    For most of my work these days, CA and epoxy are my go-to glues.

    TB2 has worked well for me! No real reason why. It's what I've used for a while and I'm happy with it! If I start doing more veneers I may look more into the ureas.

    I don't use Titebond, because it is about 3 or 4 times as expensive as the Japanese brand

    The glue I use would be your typical PVA glue, which would be a Titebond #1 or #2 if it is for outside.

    Why? Works good, is cheap and has not failed me yet!
