information woodworking resource from WoodworkingTips - free information tips measurements squares woodworking Measuring Diagonals Easily 
The last step to assembling a case is to make sure it is square. And the quickest way to do this is to measure diagonally from corner to corner. (If it is square these measurements will be the same. If not, you will need to make some adjustments.) Using a tape measure is an easy way to check for square. The problem is that keeping the end of the tape on the corners can be difficult. But with a quick modification to the hook of the tape you can solve this problem.
