I too normally use PVA woodworking glue,but would advise using a "known" brand. For those fiddly bits you can always use the nice wooden stirring spatulas that Costa Coffee etc let you remove by the handful!

This also applies to the quality PVA adhhesives, I suppose it is fair to say that the golden rule of any wood type glues/adhesives is let it go tacky before attempting to position the parts. I would also add that I have tried Bostik solvent free and it is useless!!

However i have used UHU and others for some jobs (sticking trees down and securing the edge of grass matting).

Hope this helps.
