Keep your cabinet carcase square during gluing.
Square up Cabinet Carcase for Gluing

When gluing up a cabinet carcase, it can be a task to keep the sides square. Clamping diagonally to square up the assembly is difficult with conventional clamps, so I made squaring blocks that straddle the bar of my parallel-jaw clamps. They feature a V-notch that cradles the cabinet corners while you snug the clamp to bring the cabinet square.
