Angry Suggestions please

My wife's jewelry box has been dropped and the hinge pulled out from the lid damaging the hinge slot.

I am going to attempt a fix, but before I do, would like to hear from the forum, how others would repair the damage.

I an looking at routing a deeper slot and gluing in a new filler piece.

Suggestions welcome.

Epoxy glue, you can had some stain to colour it, and I've repair this way before, it give a new look and lot of strength and never give up, I use often recycle wood and that's the way I correct defect.

Here is my suggestion James, using the ski mounted router, remove about a 1/4" all around the box. Then make a frame, probably from a contrasting wood rather than attempting to colour match. Glue the frame in place, apply a suitable finish and you will end up with a better looking jewellery box than it was originally!

Thanks for the suggestion, BJ.

I will try something else first, and if I 'stuff it up' (Aussie expression) I will have a go at a new box. I have been keeping some hardwood for just this purpose.

Thanks Norman, but I will try to replace a section first...

Haha... I knew I would get a suggestion from you , Harry, that involved the skis.....

I was going to use the skis to route the slot, but your idea has merit....
