More than likely It’s not 1 pc that’s off, they all off ~ the same amount. It can appear that just 1or 2 are off since all the error will tend to accumulate at 1 or 2 areas. Just depends on how they are being held in position.

Not a big deal – as stated just use something in between halves when gluing up, straighten each half (I use a TS tapering jig), then glue the 1/2s together. No one will know but you. Some are OCD about it, not important IMO. Projects with many small pieces are affected more – I never did that type, usually 16 or fewer per layer.

As for # of blade teeth, it is a cross cut, so more teeth are better. Tooth shape will make a difference as well but I forget which is best for this app. My 50t all purpose blade does well enough. The corner edges of the segments will need very lite sanding to remove the fuzz no matter what blade, most important is no tear out.
