Remember that corner the router ate? Well that just wasn’t going to be allowed to stand. I had to use a chisel to cut back to a straight shoulder and find some ash of the right color and grain to cut another corner from. It’s pretty good. The first pictures show the patch slightly fat so I had material to flush sand:

And now sanded and with finish on it:

Just oil sanding the sides now. Eight more days of WOOHOO!
