Steve, thanks. I agree I need to run it again with the throat plate, but do you really think that could cause the unevenness? Do you think that if it dipped slightly at the beginning it would continue to climb through the cut. It was a long board and seemed to stay level throughout the cut. Plus, I used even pressure in the center of the board, not the very beginning to force it into the throat opening. So, it just don't seem like that would effect it (but this is my first try and I'll admit I know VERY little).
Also, that was not tear out in picture #6. I physically broke that being careless fitting it together multiple times AFTER I made the profile.
Lastly, I realize the cope needs to be on the end and I actually bought an infinity coping jig (still not sure I needed such an expensive one) but I was just making test pieces. I assume that if I can fit a good profile on two long test pieces, then I should be able to easily get a good fit on the end grain.
