I am working with knotty pine, trying to make a small box with finger joints. The problem is the dado blade is tearing out chunks of stock. See my illustration. I tried scoring a line with a blade but it does not seem to make a difference. Any suggestions on how to alleviate this problem? Thanks in advance.

You could always put a scrap piece in front of the stock and give that a shot, should eliminate the tear out. I use a scrap on my jig for the router table and it works out good.

Are you familiar with Incra Tools?

Check out this video on making finger joints.

I always use a piece of scrap to back up my work on both the router table and cabinet saw.
