#100012202

I have faced this issue in one form or another many times and have messed up more often than not. Sometimes wood filler gives a second chance at a reasonable outcome.  The best I have done is to work on every other chip first with a freshly sharpened knife and a light touch.  Start at the center point with shallow cuts. Once every other chip is complete, go to the remaining uncut chips.  At this point I don’t try to start at the center.  I will back off a bit and begin carving with shallow cuts to complete the individual chips. The result is that only every other chip touches the center point.
