Have you thought of this system instead, far more versatile than mitre trackExpect an order for some mitre track in the near future!
Well I have plenty of scraps and shavings to build up a patch, I'll give this a go. I Might use a large chunk to fill most of the error, then patch it up with a resin mix. It probably will be noticeable, but on the other hand I think like you say, having a flat surface is more important than aesthetics.We all learn by our mistakes Bill & we learn more correcting them.
As has been said I’d use some of your collected purple dust & mix it with glue, I’d opt for epoxy resin though such as Araldite, do a small test mix first to see how it looks when dry. I’d definitely fill the hole though as if your luck is anything like mine I’d end up catching something important in it & regret not sorting it before.
I've got grooves for those on the front of the benches already (although I haven't got any clamps yet )Have you thought of this system instead, far more versatile than mitre track

Haha... I was gonna say I presume you had a template!! Just made my template this afternoon and it won't be looking quite so grand!.. ( But better than I expected - ahem!)..The Incra stuff is great too Peter, the plate is absolutely superb. Would never have coped without the template though!

Yeah hole saw. I think I might go down the forstner route, although during today's testing the extraction from the router's port cleaned most of the mess up, so I might leave the additional table top extraction as something to do in the future.Excellent stuff Bill, it's looking great, was it a hole saw or a forstner bit you tied for the dust port? I used a forstner.
