Help from flatboard workers

I am a turner who is struggling with flatboard work (ie precision). I watched a show on PBS the wood workers said that if the joints are tight dry, they will be impossible when you add glue as the wood will immediately swell and you are screwed. I am building a tool / machinist chest and the bottom and sides are joined with box joints that require a mallet to fit even when dry. I bought slow driving glue as a hedge but I need to ask, am I screwed. I can cut off the work and start over and all it sill do is shrink the box.
