What is the ABSOLUTE STRONGEST glue on the market?

I have a brand new (6 mos old) dining room table that was damaged in storage. I beleive I can fix it with a strong glue and well placed screws. But I need a recommendation on what glue to use.

I have heard Gorilla Glue is supposed to be good, but is there something better (stronger)- maybe some 2 part epoxy?

Thanks in advance

Gorilla glue or two part Epoxy is about as strong a glue there is for wood working. You might get stronger adhesion with a marine glue. The truth of the matter is, with proper gluing technique the glued joint or pieces should be stronger than the wood itself even with yellow carpenter's glue. I would go with the Gorilla glue though. It can be expensive and it doesn't last forever so if you don't glue a lot of materials together get a small bottle. If you've never used Gorilla glue before read the directions because it is a water curing glue. One side gets the glue and the other side gets wet.

Thank you.

To save the brand new table (and keep the wife from convincing me to buy a new one) any expense is worth the investment.
