Epoxy will typically stick to wood?
Sure, well maybe: if it was clean and dry.
You can always contact the adhesive mfg for help with wood bonding.

Sorry, not enough information posted on the epoxy you bought to enable a really useful answer. :(

FWIW – Asking ‘what is difference’ is a very open ended question:
Epoxy is very generic name for 2 part adhesive. It is often used as marketing name to describe different adhesives that are very different in chemical composition and performance. Have spent 25+ years working with ‘experts’ in developing polymer systems. Volumes of books are written on the subject of epoxy chemistry and performance. A polymer chemist can spend a life time working with epoxy chemistry and never know everything about ‘epoxy’.

Start here if you really want to know differences between epoxies:

Best Luck.
