« Part 3: Glue Up Bottom and Sides Part 4 of Dovetail Bible Box series Part 5: Boxalicious Tung Oil Finish »

I blew out the hidden dovetail trench in the bottom of my bible box so I had to make a repiar. I picked a piece of the offcut from the sides or top, I forget which. The color matched pretty well I thought. Here are a few pictures of the repair process. I just cut little bitty pieces and glued them in the trench hole.
Repair 1
You should be able to see the offcut I used laying across the bottom of the box along side the two blowouts.
Repair 2
This one shows one of the patch pieces on the sanding block I used to help make them fit.
Repair 3
Patch pieces glued in the trench holes.
Repair 4
After drying and sanding flush. Still pretty obvious I think. Oh well.

Next time I should had the lid and bottom sanded and ready for finishing. Maybe the patch won’t look so obvious after I apply the finish.

Thanks for reading.
