In addition to the above comments I would suggest checking your crosscut sled using the 5 cut method. There are numerous youtube videos showing how to do this. I also break down sheet goods like you do but I check the sheet for squareness and if it’s square you know you have 90 degree corners. I don’t use a sled, just the fence on the table saw. I use the factory edges as my starting point and after every cut I put an X on the side so I know later that it is a “good” edge. Also when there are several pieces that are the same height and width I will cut them all to the required width from one fence setting and then to length from one fence setting. Good Luck with you project.
