I’m going to starting a project were I’m laminating wood together to make stool. I need a slow drying glue because assembly might take some time. I need some suggestions.

I did a search at the top of the page and there is lots of suggestions.
Here is one of them
Do a search for glue if that is not helpful.

west system epoxy, you should have plenty of time. You’ll need to leave it clamped up overnight though!

In this video clip, Nick Engler goes into the detail (and even the math) concerning laminate bending/gluing. This particular application is a bow front cabinet, and the first part of the video deals with the cabinet itself. Stay with it, and Nick really gets into instruction on building the molds, gluing and clamping. I hope that you find this informative.
