Square cut cabinet parts = a square cabinet box. The all faces need to be square cut to the faces too (this means make dams sure the saw blade is 90 degrees to the saw table). Out of square parts = out of square cabinet boxes. I learned this the hard way. I tend to make a cut list and cut all my parts at the same time. I once cut parts for 22 cabinet boxes out of square. If you try to square an out of square box by forcing it with clamps you’ll just distort another part of the box, most likely you’ll pull the back out of flat . My fix (I’m picky) was, I gave all the boxes to my neighbors and they use them of storage. I now check my part frequently when cutting.

If you haven’t put all the boxes together you may be able to salvage some material by re-cutting to square and use those part for a smaller box.
