    Silicone can only seal, it cannot provide support.

    Some right angle clamps make life a lot easier. Also get at least 2, preferably more, long clamps. For glue, Titebond II or III are the preferred ones that have the strongest bond.

    Titebond III is what I like for glue... through testing it has proven that it has the strongest bond. You can also use it to seal the box, but you can only do one side at a time as the stuff is runny... silicone will work as well. The tool list so far looks pretty complete to me, but a few simple tools such as a ruler, carpenter's square, and sharp pencil would also be pretty handy .
