I would have to agree with David B. I think first of all, your chisel is not sharp enough. I know that Paul encourages us to sharpen our tools regularily. However, I think a bigger problem is that you are hitting the wood to hard. I work with a lot of pine myself and ws having the same problem. I have learned that it requires a little more finesse. So my suggestion would be to lighten up on your blows and it will probably fix your problem.
