I am trying to cut out ridges on an object using another object. When I apply subdivision on it, level 1 is alright, but level 2 onwards weird stuff is happening. Images below illustrate my issues better.

Boolean cutter, applied with level 1 subdivision work fine.

You basically want to make sure that the vertices, edges and faces of the cutting object never sit directly on top of those of the object cutted into. Try scaling or moving the cutting object by only a few micro- or millimeters. Finding a good position obviously becomes harder with each subdivision, since there are more possibilities of nearly identical vertices appearing.
