    I've always liked resorcinol glue, buy it powdered and mix as you need it. I've used it as the main adhesive when building a duck boat, 30+ years later and no issues with bonds breaking. Also works great on decoys.

    I also started out with resorcinol glue and the bsc decoys I made starting in 1985 are still holding together perfectly. I just changed to plastic resin glue after about 8 years because I though resorcinol glue was over kill. It was said that if you glued two pieces of wood together with resorcinol after the wood rotted away the glue joint would still be solid. Plastic resin was a lot cheaper and easier to use (a powder mixed with water) and those plastic resin decoys are still holding up perfect also so.........it really just comes down to what you want to use. I don’t have any experience with gorilla glue but it sure seems popular so must work fine.
