if you construct a wooden form as in my drawing above,
you can glue in your "Dutchman" patch that is a little taller
than the door surface. once the glue/epoxy dries/cures solid,
you can use the same wooden form as a "mini-sled" to
remove the excess patch down to almost flush. that would
minimize the sanding that would have to be done.
it would be nice if you could post some photos of the project
from start to finish. I have always been interested in different
methods of making Dutchman repairs.
I have not used the inserts that go into the router base plates in years.
I use pattern bits with a bearing almost exclusively.
there is no educational alternative to having a front row seat in the School of Hard Knocks.
