Glue for Padauk wood


I would like to know what kind of glue to use for Padauk and Purple Heart. I'm presently using the Titebond ll which leaves a grey glue line on the Purple Heart and a Red glue line on the Padauk (after sanding). The joints are perfectly glued but the glue line does show. I first started with the regular standard wood glue and did not have this problem but question the strenght and durability. Is there anything better? Thanks,

Joints I've glued with Titebond original haven't shown any lines and haven't failed yet.

padouk is a oily wood and yellow glue does not make a strong joint. poly glue will do a better job on it. gorilla glue has been the strongest I have found. moisten both sides after you freshly mill or sand it and glue it up. purpleheart is easy to glue with any normal woodworking glue. so the standard wood glue is fine. the poly does not leave any glue line that I have ever seen.
