Roll the case parts up.

And tape off the last joint.

There will be some glue squeeze out on the inside of the blue taped corner joints.  But it's going to be inaccessible till dry.  How do you manage this?  Is it small enough to ignore, or do you scrape it out when dry?

I've gotten pretty good about guessing the right amount of glue but there is always the chance of a bit of squeeze out. I pre-finish the insides with shellac. This makes popping or paring the squeeze out pretty easy.  I use a paring chisel or something like this if required.

I have used the blue tape along the inside seams method but find it . . . meh.  The pre-finish helps with the finished appearance and the squeeze out.
