If you're doing small mosaics, I've found that Weldbond all-purpose glue is very good, and non-toxic, too. Plus, you can get it in gallon jugs if you go online. Otherwise, it can be found in hardware stores.

If you're doing indoor mosaics, I've found that Weldbond all-purpose glue is very good, and nontoxic, too. Many hardware stores carry it, and if you go online, you can find it in gallon jugs.

This To That is a glue advice website, Robin is correct, but if you need another choice-

I've also used glass tile mastic that was then grouted for a mosaic.

I have heard that a few drops of super glue on the wood makes a surface that allows other glues to bond to without betraying its presence if the wood is going to get a finish like varnish on it.

I have used (for mosaic) one of the GE (I think) silicones for windows.
