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.

I come to you because my profession was medical. A few years back I purchased a two chair 3 piece dinette set. After putting it together one thing was evident. My surgically repaired right wrist was not as strong as it once was. The wrist was repaired
because my serviced connected right knee gave out while walking. Both knees are bad but the right one is worse. So I had to devise another plan. I searched and found a company in California who's owner was a fellow veteran. He sold a superglue for $25 a bottle. It did not work and contacted him. He returned my $25. So that brings me to you the expert. In my research I found out that adhesives are made for industrial strength and a product for John Q. Public. I ask if you have any suggestions? Add to this my hypertension. Bending over adds another concern. I sweat profusely. Thinks have gotten worse because of the inactivity has caused the extra weight. That has turned me into a diabetic. At the onslaught I was hospitalized with blood sugar of over 1400. If you do have a solution my next concern is do you accept phone orders. I know of an incident that took place in 1979 that the Carter Administration did not want to get out. So they invented a word-it was called disinformation. Go Figure
