I’m surprised that the Liquid Nails didn’t hold. As stated above, most likely because of end grain. Your picture shows a lot of glue residue on the plywood substrate. You didn’t show what the glue surface on the blocks looks like. If the end grain on the blocks have glue on them, a re-glue with the same product might hold OK. Before you re-glue, however, check to see if the end grain is well coated. If not, “butter” it well with a thin coat and let dry. Then re-glue. I would keep an eye on your other projects. The same is likely to happen. I think that using a different adhesive now might have adhesion problems unless you scrape off all of the old Liquid Nails. If you do this again, you might try one of the adhesives made for paneling (not suggesting the Liquid Nails was wrong). A little experimenting might serve you well. You might also contact the Liquid Nails people to see if they have any suggestions.
