    I use Titebond 3. Some say it's over kill but I have never had a piece come apart on the lathe.

    I have used Titebond II and III. I have also used Elmer white wood glue. It seems to dry clear. Titebond has a tint of yellow. Have not had any bowls fall apart.

    Also, Welcome to WTP.

    Micheal, asking a segmenter what glue he or she uses is like playing with a loaded gun.
    Most segmenters seem to use original Titebond or Titebond II, most open segments use original Titebond, Titebond Translucent or Titebond Thick and Quick.
    Titebond Translucent & Titebond Thick and Quick, dry much clearer than the other versions of Titebond
