what type of joint? X 2

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?
A mortise and tenon can be shimmed, a round dowel can be sleeved, a hole can be filled/plugged and rebored. Mixing PVA and epoxy may not work. You can heat a PVA joint with a hair dryer and it will release it's bond. Here's a good description of all the Titebond products. There are different products for loose fitting applications.
