Several responses, some good advice. Above all, have your wood acclimated. Could be a couple of weeks, could be more, depending on the source and storage of the wood. Construction grade with high turnover may have to shed 10% to get in line with indoor conditions, because it leaves the mill at ~20% moisture content. That's a couple months. Second, get edges at 90 degrees before you draw the clamps. Don't have to be anal about it, you can set the jointer fence at a clean angle, or you can do the flippity flip. I figure that fence is better at holding 90 than I am, so I take what it gives.
Then there's the "smiles" controversy. I think its a pretense. I get the boards arrayed to look the best and glue 'em. Years in dad's shop, my shop, school shop seem to show that it really doesn't make much difference as long as you don't try to join the first board away from the heart to others of its ring curvature.
What can make a huge difference is the way you use the clamps. You want center of the screw aligned with center of the board with pipe or bar types, and there are few who take the time. Can screw things up real fast if you don't draw straight through the center, but toward an edge. I use some of my handy shims to elevate the glueup and make it so. The Besseys are a good thing to have, but I still alternate. Lay a board across the glueup to check for flat, even if you're not using cauls.

When you say finished... do you mean assembled or poly/shellac/varnish/lacquer?
Did you "fininsh" one side of the board? You need to finish all sides of board. or you can expect serious cupping.

Actually, I was thinking Shakespeare and Dali's "Persistance of Time"
