Making router miscuts disappear

 

2 photo showing before and after

Accidental gouges

A bumped elbow, or just a slip of the hand, and there it is-a router miscut. Even with your best efforts, you can't always keep them from happening. One common example: You built cabinet doors, carefully measured and marked the hinge locations, and set the router bit to cut to the correct depth. Just as you complete the recess for the hinge mortise, the cord catches and you accidentally rout outside the marked lines. Is the door ruined? Absolutely not! A simple angled inlay creates a nearly seamless grain match guaranteed to restore the woodwork and a smile to your face.
