Chris, Paul,
Animal glues are great for applications where you may want to take the joint apart at a later time. All you have to do is heat the joint and the glue will soften. The down side is, certain types of bacteria will attack the glue and eventualy cause the joint to separate. Modern glues like TITEBOND hold up better over time and are much stronger. I would avoid any kind of foaming glue such as GORILLA GLUE because I have found that it does not give a strong joint. My favorite wood glue, and the strongest wood glue I ever found, is a construction glue called PL PREMIUM. I have glued many cabinet doors and drawers together with that stuff and never had a joint fail or come loose.
