There is one other tip to try
Spread a bead of glue along one edge. Bring the next edge to the glue. press into the glue, then move the second edge back and forth along the length of the joint….you will feel it “stick”. make sure the two are aligned where you want them…they WILL sit there as if clamped up. Then you just add clamps as needed, until a bead barely shows.

I do a dry fit first, looking for gaps..

Then a “Wet Fit” glue in the joints, using the tip above…..only the glue holds these three boards in place.

Then add a few clamps, until a bead just start to show. Panels, I’ll add a few cauls to keep things flat, until the glue cures.
