Scoring cut skips the chips

Scoring cut skips the chips

If both faces of a veneer plywood will be visible on your project, minimize chip-out on each side by dividing the cut. First make a shallow scoring cut 1⁄16″ to 1⁄8″ deep, as shown. This allows the teeth to bite at a shallower angle, which reduces chip-out. Then raise the blade, and make another pass to cut completely through the workpiece.
