Titebond Original fan here. I used to thin with water when putting up 12' bendable handrails to give me more open time.
Never lost a joint on one of those.

^^^^^ This - I really believe we're "overthinking" this. Somehow, I doubt anyone here will go broke buying another bottle of Titebond glue. However, like Bill I do not like unnecessary waste. I've diluted Titebond glue many, many times when I thought the viscosity was a little too thick for my application. I was recently doing some edge glue-ups of 5/8" thick material and thought the glue was a little too thick (new bottle). Dipped my acid brush in water many times while applying the glue to the edges.

No failures to date.

Thanks for all the replies, fellas.  I've been gluing up some joints with that thick glue and it seems to work fine, just harder to use than glue of normal consistency.  I skwoz a gob into a small dish and applied it with a shortened acid bush.  It's the thickness of thick yogurt.  A golf ball sized glob flattens to about half that thickness.  It cures hard and for all appearances looks fine.  I will give it a shot of water to make it a bit more user friendly though.  Waste not want not. I also have a fresh bottle on the shelf. Winkgrin
