Hi I’m making a box for a Christmas present(cutting it close I know). I cut the lid off last night on the table saw and everything is great, except one corner for an instant got caught between the blade and the fence. Now it has a little indent of about a 1/32” deep and about .75” long so that just that corner isn’t sitting flush with the rest of the box. Everything else is close to perfect. I’m trying to figure out a fix for this. I have two ideas:
1. I could try to use a block plane to even it up. With this method I’d have to do all 4 sides and I could end up chasing my tail a little trying to get it even and sitting flush.
2. I could use a sled on my fence, similar to tenoning jigs used by some and run it back through the blade. Obviously this would be more mechanically accurate, but I have to build a jig.
I could of course leave it and no one will probably ever notice it, but my woodworker OCD won’t let that happen.
Any other ideas would be great. I’m sure someone out there has faced this before. Thanks in advance.
