I have a joint I used Titebond II on and realized afterwards that the fit wasn't tight. The joint came apart. It is my understanding that wood glue soaks in deep and thus you can't use it to re-glue the joint. Does anyone have any experience with using epoxy with a filler in a situation such as this? Any other recommendations?

Thanks and a little more info

Thanks to all for your quick responses. A little more info for the stream. I am building a cedar strip canoe and the joint I am glueing is the stem. I got a good fit on most of it, but the last 2-3 inches did not. I was working a bit blind and really should have held up - too much of a hurry. So imagine 3/4" wide X 1/4" strips, standing vertically with one side beveled to lay against the other. Glue them up, trim off the excess of one side and then work it to a nicer look with a rasp. I can get the strips to fit together with clamps - I just didn't do so the first time.
