I’m in the middle of a project can’t say what it is just yet but it will be posted as soon as it’s complete, so while using my new Incra 1000 Miter gauge I was on the table saw cutting 3/4” dados, on the third stick of wedge, I must of gotten side tracked and put the stick in wrong the cut was made before I realized it was in wrong, well I didn’t at the time really know what to do and thought I’d have to cut a whole new part but I thought OK let’s try and fix this so I first attempted glue and sawdust paste, after drying, nope that wasn’t going to work then it dawned on me let’s splice it, so I put it back on the miter gauge and re-cut the slot removing the dried glue, most of you seasoned woodworkers probably already know this trick but I just figured it out, what I did I just added a spline to it like I do box splines and it came out perfect.

Randy,

Nicely done, and always remember, ‘It’s not how bad we err, it’s how well we can recover’.

Best Regards. – Grandpa Len.

” ‘It’s not how bad we err, it’s how well we can recover’”
Very true, we all makes mistakes but only some are able to make their mistakes look like if they were almost done on purpose.
