A denibbing tool is handy to keep around for shellac and lacquer imperfections. Since you probably don’t have one handy, a card scraper used gently will shave it flush. If you want to play it really safe, remove the burr from the scraper. Make sure the edges are square and sharp, just don’t put the burr back on it. Go lightly, since all you want to do is level it.
