Topic tags/keywords: question

While making one of the Andy style boxes I made a cut on the wrong surface of one of the boxes side. I made a cut for the bottom plywood on the exterior surface so instead of scrapping the expensive piece of Wenge I decided to put an inlay all the way around. “It’s not a mistake, it’s a design change”. I was trying to be careful but somehow the one corner miters on the inlay wasn’t right, it was good until I sanded it round. Any suggestions on how to fix it? If it was on the back corner I’d try to putty it.

Thanks in advance

Cut a(Nuther) wide spline and filll-er-in. Only cut as deep as necessary to repair though. Hey, it happens, and you move on. :) The box looks nice so far.
