I had this little unpleasant experience when I was gluing on a back. I left a gap when I didn't check the other side to see if everything was flush when I glued. This caused a big sigh a day later when 10 seconds of checking and a clamp would have saved a lot more work. Duck soup fix however and this is where highly figured wood comes in handy. Take Home Lesson: Prevent extra work by preventing screw ups from happening before they happen.

Now there is a time that having used hot hide glue would have worked to your advantage. Nice fix.

Youre not alone..:( I'm about to start on my 3rd attempt at fixing a bad top.

I have also been there, done that. It's easy to do when you're working against time, especially if the overhang of your top is large. It looks like you saved it, though.
