Aurora Nighstand - Oops #1

Oops. I managed to start the bandsaw cut on the wrong side of the line as I was preparing to rout the curve on the bottom of one of the aprons. Fortunately, I recognized my stupidity fairly quickly, and what could have been a big pain in the butt turned out to be just a little setback.

To recover, I used the table saw to trim off the ruined area with a straight cut parallel to the grain. Then I dug through the scrap pile for a matching piece, glued it on, and continued as if nothing had happened.

In the end, crawling insects will point and laugh at the seam (see the green arrow) on the bottom edge of the apron. Those of us with greater stature will not notice the repair.
