I use white glue for most furniture making… mostly because
it has a longer open time than yellow glue.

I’ve tried liquid hide glue and don’t see any advantage to it.

I have a glue pot for hide glue too but never use it.

Plastic resin glue is good for lamination because it doesn’t creep
out of the joints over time like yellow glue will.

White glue is, in my opinion, more brittle and resistant to
creep than yellow glue. Plastic resin glue is still more brittle
and creep resistant – and inferior in filling gaps.

Polyeurethane glue is good too, but sometimes messy and it
goes bad quickly in the bottle.
