getting sawmark-free cuts is kind of the holy grail. the higher the number of teeth on the blade, the less marks you get, but also the longer it takes to make a rip-type cut.

Most people use a high tooth count blade for cuts across the grain (called crosscuts) and a lower tooth count blade for going with the grain (called rip cuts).

there are blades that are called ‘glue line’ blades that are marketed as giving a very smooth cut that can be directly glued and have no need for sanding. have never tried one, but they sound too good to be true.

as for sanding affecting the squareness, that’ll improve with time as you do more sanding. that’s really the only help for it.
