No glue yet but in the space of a day I was able to cut each of the pieces you see in the image above to exact sizes. Some internals now benefit from enhanced structural stability due to strategic use of 1/4" ply which will not expand or contract with changes in humidity. I'm only able to use ply however where it will never be seen.
All I need to finish the mock up are the fascia trims that go above and below the drawer fronts to finish off the front of the close up pad.
