Hi Chet, you could try a few taps on either end with a rubber mallet. The guy most likely to know what to do is Bobj3. If he doesn't see this and respond to it then get yourself up to 10 posts and send him a private message and ask him what he would do. It's easy to get up to the 10 posts. Just go onto the "show and tell" section of the forum and comment on the work that others have posted.
Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
