I've done this before myself.

Took a Dremel to the remaining scrap parts tree and made a huge mess for 15 minutes. Took all the shavings and mixed it up with two part epoxy. Once sanded and smoothed over, was hardly noticable.

Put the epoxy in the corner of a plastic bag and cut the tip off to make a nice clean fillet.

In kayak building belt sander wood dust makes good thickener.......... Also, graphite powder mixed with epoxy is black, add it to the bottom of a kayak, then when dry scuff it with a scotch bright pad and the hull of the kayak slides over rock, rather than grabbing and gouging the wood......
