Mike—thanks for the advice. I’ve been using the veritas cutting wheel, which seems to work well, but maybe it can’t go deep enough. I’ve scored the line as deep as I can with it, but maybe that’s not deep enough, at least in softwood. Maybe a traditional cutting gauge is what’s needed, though I never saw anyone else report that as a drawback of the veritas wheeled gauge.

And just for my own education, going past the line pretty much requires new lines to be made and dropping the whole surface by the same amount, yes? I guess I don’t see any other way to recover from it.
