Perhaps you can shim the face of the 90 fence with a bit of tape to return it back to 90.  You might also be able to true the fence using a shoulder plane or rabbet plane.  Just don’t leave behind the little feather of wood that will forever keep pushing you stock away from the fence (DAMHIKT).

Or just write it off to practice as you are planning to make another one anyway.

I need another shooting board like I need a hole in the head!  I think 5 is sufficient but the wee-little one with adjustable fence is fun to shoot veneer for parquetry…  I would however like to make a proper miter jack one of these days.
