Just so you know, Titebond III will fail if you heat the joint up. Titebond II is more heat resistant dut is not watter resistant.

I know of what you speak. When I assembled my cart made from ash, there were several joints that had to seat at the same time. It took 4 or 5 dry assemblies to come up with a sequence that I could use to minimize the grab. A cull with a dead blow hammer or a clamp to bring it in tight – again, use a cull so you can add more pressure – makes up the difference.
