I'm a novice at building raised panel doors and just when I thought
everything was going well when I was cutting the cove in panel, I managed to
take about a one inch chunk out of it. Right where the inner part of the
cove meets. Is there anyway to fix this without starting over. Anyway to
drill out the problem area and put a plug in it? Since this is my first
cabinet project, it has a few other minor errors so I don't expect a perfect
repair for my mistake. The wood is Cherry.

No, no no! Putty and sand, stain and poly. THAT's evil.

If it's to be painted, then use putty. If stain grade, you'll have to
cut out a section and find another piece with as close to matching grain
as possible, or else rip the edge off, glue another edge on, and re-cut
I ended up cutting out that section and I fortunately found I had a piece of
wood that was close to the grain of the panel and glued it. I sure have
lots to learn about this stuff. It's fun and that's all that really matters.
Consider it a learning experience and convert the door into cherry
chips for your smoker.
Don't have a smoker?
Well now that you will have chips, you can justify the smoker.
