Last I knew all modern wood glues are rated at a holding power of something like 2500 lbs per square inch. Which is way stronger than the wood. When I make things like saw sleds, router tables, and so on, I only use glue, no metal - because I reclaim the wood in these when I'm through with them, and often run the remnants thru my planer, and do NOT want any missed screws or nails nicking my blades.
And when I do take them apart, to recycle what I can, I have to beat them brutally with a sledge hammer, with the handle shortened to about a foot. And, believe me, it definitely takes more than one or two slams with it. My glue of preference is Titebond II, but as far as I am aware, any of the wood glues are stronger than the wood.
That's gluing following directions - if the wood is glued and the heat is too low, that makes for a very weak joint, very. I often like to add glue blocks or strips, usually about 1/2" X 1/2", which gives me a bit feel good.

.....Call me a craftsman, artisan, or artistic, and I will accept that. Call me an artist and you will likely get a quite rude comment in return. I am not a @#$%ing artist.
