Your scraper needs sharpening work. It's a bit of an art to doing it right, but if you're making dust then either the cutting geometry or how you are holding it needs to be addressed. Even on figured wood binding you should be getting super fine shavings that are thin enough that you can almost see through them.

You'll find if you make your binding cuts at an overlapping angle then it's much easier to create a tight fitting joint. If you're careful you could still get an almost invisible lapped joint, even if you have to insert a small piece.
