Fixing a crooked mortise


Recommended Posts

I found myself in a situation where I had to redo a table leg after the first one I started had a knot in the middle of it I didn't find until I chopped a mortise in it. So on my second attempt I had my guide I use to chop my mortise off by just a little bit and I wound up cutting a mortise that was slightly not parallel with the leg. My plan to fix it is just apply some glue to the inside of the bad corner and then clean it up with a chisel to add a little more thickness in that spot.

Are there any other tips or better ideas for this situation?
