That jig requires you to use stock width of 4-1/4”, 5-1/4”, 6-1/4” etc.
If you use any other width besides an even inch plus 1/4”, you will not get a neat half pin at each end.

There are enough little issues to iron out with dovetail jigs, and starting with stock that isn’t straight and square will only compound those issues.

Also we need a picture or more details to really answer your question. For instance you didn’t mention if the uneven edge was on the side (jig depth setting), or uneven top to bottom (consistent stock width, in the correct increments, fully against side stop on jig, cut with router that has centered guide bushing of the correct size etc).
