Look on the bright side it could have been your finger

@russย 

Itโ€™s only a 30 min job to fit a wedge if you have machine tools, plus 30 min for the glue to set

Some people call me a tool, others are less complimentary. Tools being useful things.

@russ Well you know, you can turn it into a cutaway. Sorry bad joke. Just fill it and move on. Perhaps think about binding the top to make it more look unnoticeable.

Cheers @clinton.ย 

Even bad jokes are funny. If we didn't laugh, life would be a joke. 😁😂ย 

There will be some binding so hopefully not too much will show.

Robin by filling the gap and putting a thin veneer over it to blend in

I showed that repair to friend and although I said I was happy with it, he could tell by the way I was talking that I wasn't really happy at all. I've got some hide glue now to try again, but it's boat maintenance season now, so it'll have to wait.

Again no pictures of me making them but I've made the bridge plate, top plate and sound hole plates. Still to be glued in. I should probably have got them in before the braces but it's not the first time I've done things in the wrong order. 😁😂ย

I had to slightly widen the end graft slot as I hadn't quite got the edges straight enough.ย ย

ย Then I cut out the end graft to fit in the slot.ย ย

Cheers @rocknroller912. There is a wee scar but you have to look closely. I kept the scar there to remind me never to do it again. 🤣ย
