If one size fits all, then I see a problem of not being able to cut the

I am trying to trim out the doors in a style from earlier times. I use
plinth blocks (5 quarter by 4 about 7" tall), vertical columns (1x4) with
flutes, and corner blocks ( 5 quarter 4x4 with daisy designs). The top is a
1x4 without decoration. The trick seems to be to get everything plumb and
square - and with no gaps between the 7 pieces in the assembly. Possible?
My first attempt was to square the plinth blocks with the floor so that the
tops of the plinths were truly horizontal. Then glue each plinth block,
column, and corner square together - making a single column. Then install
the two columns and finally fit in the top (horizontal) piece.
Never could get it without some gaps and fill required. Am I trying too
hard? Is it possible in real life?
