A glue up mistake is not always a permanent issue.

Depending on how large the project and glue up is, a glue up is not always permanent, it can be delaminated, by using a heat gun of 400 degrees or hotter and heating up the glue joint, (no matter how long cured) and using a metal scrapper working it between the glue joints along with heat it can be split apart with no damage to the wood only a little sanding to remove the glue left behind, any wood glue.

One of my peeves is not getting accurate box joints because not having the proper pin or project placement before making the cut.
