edge guide and rout the two edges clean...
square shoulder dado the cut and fill it w/ a contrasting wood...
reroute your your grove as you originally intended....
leave the contrasting wood as an accent....

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

Stick....

Hi Shuja, it almost looks like you were routing freehand.

I endorse Stick's method, using an edge guide..

PS..what router are you using, so that we may be able to help with the depth setting.

James, I did have the edge guide, but I under estimated the power of the router. It became free hand.
Stick, contrasting wood is a good idea. But willit hold? How deep / wide should I go to fill it?

cut a filler and lay it in place...
it's a matter of aesthetics...

yes it will hold...
you need to decide if the banding comes out wide or thin...
there is nothing to stop you from practicing on scrap to get a feel for depth and widths..

Hi Shuja, if you were using an edge guide, I would check your feed direction.

If you go anti clockwise, the router will hold tight against the side. If you go clockwise, the router will push the edge guide away from the timber.

Just my tip...

PS I like that idea for a contrasting wood inlay.

Thank you James. Yes sir, I was actually going anticlockwise. But as I said it just went awry.

It looks like you were going in the wrong direction.
See my edited pic of your board. Sorry, I can't draw a straight line.

Is this the direction your router traveled as you made the cuts?

Y'all correct me if I am wrong.

Edit: I found some reading material.

Mike, I actually started at the top right corner and went left i.e., against the arrow you have shown. The bottom groove was made from the other corner to the top right corner again opposite to your arrow. I connected the two grove together with the shorter line afterwards. As I said, I simply could not control the router at the particular moment. Once I started after the initial hiccup, things went well. I connected the two longer grooves with shorter groove without any guide. By then I could get the feel of the machine.
Thank you for the reading material.
