Base chip-out repair

In a few spots the bases chipped out pretty badly. In retrospect, this was easily predictable/ avoidable but I didn't think first. A great woodworker, they say, is not one who never makes mistakes but one who can hide them well.

I hand planed the rough chipped-off edge flat, which allowed a few scraps to be glued on. After gluing, I trimmed the excess off to get it a little closer. I'll clean these up by sanding to the final shape so as to not chip out the repair.

It's very ugly right now, but the grain match on the face is what matters at this point. Everything else will sand out flush.
