Cut a filler strip from scrap stock that
closely matches in color and grain.
Glue it in place; then plane or sand it flush.

Time To Start Over?

Fill the gap and start over

If the gap is too wide for either of the previous fixes, and you don't want to scrap the part, fill the dado with a strip of similar wood that closely matches in color and grain pattern, as shown below. Next, recut your dado to the correct width, making test cuts in scrap to confirm the fit. If possible, position the new dado so any sliver of the filler strip that will show is on the side that will be seen the least.
