The main time I get blade marks is from wood movement, so I cut within 1/16” of the finish line on short boards and then finish with another run through. If the edge is still straight it works out. On a long board I’ll go 1/4’ – 38” wide and let it sit a days before checking for straightness, joining if necessary and running it to the actual size needed. All the wood here is air dried and rough cut, so the extra steps are needed but I can usually get through with minimal saw marks.
