Check the Glue
If you're uncertain about your glue's age, test its bond strength. Glue together two small scraps that are each about 1 in. wide, clamp and let dry 24 hours. Hit one piece with a hammer. If the two pieces shear apart with no fibers from one piece stuck to the other, your glue is probably too old. Replace it.

Keep handy all the clamps and blocks you used in the dry fit. Arrange them so each is oriented correctly. Place all your parts in a logical order, so you can assemble them in sequence. Just remember—don't panic.
