Making router miscuts disappear

Scribe the area to be patched

1. With a sharp knife and clamped straightedge, scribe a diagonal line outside of the mistakenly routed area. By scribing a long line that angles only slightly across the grain, the patch will effectively blend with the surrounding grain. Always avoid butt joints that cut across the grain--those patches will stick out like a sore thumb. Using a straight bit and a secured straightedge, carefully rout the area to the same depth as the mortise.
