Red face Cabinet door repair

Had to make a new piece for my cabinet door. Was going good then it happened. Had the profile down pat for the the whole molding aspect then I had to make a cut where the door frames meet. Found using my screw clamp worked well. Well all that said here is where I screwed up I did my first cut using a half inch straight bit did the cut found that had a little edge on the outside of it so went to clean it up and went deeper into the length cut. But it works if it was my own cabinets I would have remade this door and the others so they would match it does still look half decent but it is a blemish and I figured instead of a triumph I would show that we make mistakes to. But I still used mine.

The beauty of making mistakes is the "lesson learned".

I wish I had a nickle, for every mistake I made that I could not use, and ended up doing it again.

Thats a "kodack moment".

Have a great day

As this appears to be confession time, here are some of my past mistakes when making raised panel doors, so don't feel too bad Glenmore.
