I used my mortiser to square up the corners and from there reinforced the entire top section of the front piece with straight cut bits of plywood from the table saw so once I sand it, fill in any gaps with paste, and paint it, it will look pretty smooth. Till then its rougher then I would like.
It will take practice, but it's worth it for the time savings and material savings than post processing. Looks good so far with what you did though! Just trying to save you some time.

Have you decided what are you planning on sealing everything up with? Siliconed joints and then epoxy coat everything? Working with wood is making this a very interesting project to follow, I'm taking some notes for a custom viv.
