Scoring cut skips the chips

MPC103559

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 116 " to 18 " 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.
