Thanks All for the feedback. I prepared cauls to go both directions so that that break would close properly. Used lots of packing tape and the cauls. For the wood surface where glue shouldn’t end up, I put down some painters tape. Did a dry clamp up first. I used warm liquid hide glue and held the piece in a variety of directions to get glue everywhere it should go. It’s in the clamps and I will let it sit overnight. We shall see how it goes. I’ve also attached a photo of the carcass of this Shaker chimney cupboard. I’m close to finished. I’m following a design from Fine Woodworking. It appears quite popular as I’ve seen a few others make it on the monthly photos that get posted I will follow up after I remove it form the clamps and clean it up with my hand plane and wood filler.

I’ve decided to keep this piece rather than remake it mostly for two reasons: it’s for my household, it’s on the inside and likely won’t be seen. If I had done something similar on the front, I would have remade it. I would have preferred to not have made this mistake but I am certainly learning a lot. Unlikely I will do this again or get over forceful during glue up with clamps. If something is going together like the dry run, there is likely a reason other than swelling by the glue on the joints.
