Titebond II Extend is a newer version of the Titebond II water resistant
It offers extended working time. Although I think it is only around the 15
minute mark, but you may get away with a little more.

If you are willing to play some games, epoxy will do the trick.
Use a slow hardener and work in a 50F-55F environment.
(Thin with 10% denatured alcohol to reduce the viscosity).
Once the glue-up is in the clamps, move it to a warmer area to cure.

If you look in the yellow pages for a local epoxy dealer, they can get you a
combination resin and catalyst that can be formulated for just about any set
time you want. When doing involved faceframes for my kitchen I got one that
had a 3 hr. pot life and a 7 hr. set time, add a little "thickener" and it
works great. (If you're not in a hurry).

This is a no brainer - use polyeuthane glue. I like EXCEL brand but
it is also sold as Gorilla glue and house brands often call it PE
glue. It has the consistency of a heavy pancake syrup and I love the
stuff. I have used it for veneer work were I need to veneer 2 sides
of a large panel and I need lots of time. The EXCEL brand takes about
2 hours before it starts to dry depending on your rel humidity. I
leave things over night but it is fairly dry at 4-6 hours. Other
brands are trying to shorten this drying time but I actually like it
long. Sands beautifully and is waterproof. Fills gaps great and
expands when it dries. Don't try to clean up the squeeze out no
matter how bad it looks. Just wait till it is good and dry and then
trim with a razor blade and sand it off. Easy as pie. I love the
stuff but it is a bit pricey. It keeps for a long time if you put it
in the refrig. You can even freeze it for longer storage.
