The only time I tried turning was in high school wood shop. You guys have my admiration.
Another consideration would be if you want the glued joint to be water proof/resistant... And the density, hardness of the resulting glue joint. If hard (like some epoxies), then it tends to affect how a chisel cuts trough it right? Then I would get a ridge where that joint was... so I had to sand to blend it better. (But, again, that was many years ago.)
