For gluing wood to wood epoxy is not the best choice… it hardens too fast, doesn’t soak into the wood, and is a weaker bond than wood glues that soak into the wood as they slowly dry. Save epoxy for when you’re gluing plastic or metals.

The slower drying epoxies (you can get 15 or even 45 minute epoxy but it can be hard to find, R/C hobby shops sometimes carry them) tend to be stronger. On the downside they may run more before they set.
