Chris one thing I do is take a razor blade and make a cut between the wood and bushing. When seperated I have a piece of 320 grit glued to a piece of glass. I stand the bushing on end and pull it across this to make sure the end is squared plus make it smooth. I do believe the glue was longer than the blank is what caused your problem. I have had that happen a couple of time is why the cut and the glass with sandpaper.
