Clep, I am not sure if wood glue would be a good idea as it would be permanent. The original application is with a paper backer (Like a gasket) with adhesive. This is what separated from the wood base. As you can see the material cupped (warped) with time and lifted from the edge. also if you get a little bit of the glue falls onto the reed after you clamp it you will more than likely need to replace the reed. An even layer of contact cement on both the veneer and the base will make a better seal. let both dry about 20 minutes before you stick them together and no glue will fall onto the reed.
