Back to the shop to save the top.
I started by edging all sides with redwood, thus covering the misplaced hole.
I carefully marked the new holes.
I clamped the top to my workbench and dragged the drill press over for a more precise hole placement.
Cut off saw and bar stock.
I hammered in the bar after fudging with some washers and a spacer or two. The case hole is 1/16” larger than the bar.
Watch it spin…
I installed flip tabs to keep that table in place as per the plans. I am also going to add some bolts for greater stability. I worry that the tabs could wear out.
Next: Bolts for the top, bolting the planer, a drawer?
