Welcome to the world of woodworking. I’ve been at it since ‘76. I’m still trying to figure out why one piece will cut fine, the next 3 will have those itty bitty saw marks you show, then the next several will be fine. Even though it’s a piece of lumber from a once live tree, the lumber is still alive. It will move until it doesn’t exist. Learn to live with those itty bitty scratches. You will probably sand them off or hide them with another piece butted up to that edge. Unless you blade is angled by more than a half degree, no on will know. Stop your frettin’...........
