I kind of stumbled on this method by accident.
I haven’t tested it on hardwood but your big box soft wood lumber works perfectly..
Stanley No. 95 or equivalent (veritas or LN)
Block plane or smoothing plane set for thin shavings.
I usually take 8-12 passes with the 95 each direction,
This is usually enough to get rid of that rounded edge you get
With big box store construction grade lumber.
But wait! I just changed directions against the grain!
Doesn’t matter the blade is at such a low angle and skewed tare out is non-existant. And if there is a little it will be cleaned up with a couple of light passes from a block plane or smoother..
Try and keep consistent pressure and count your passes in each direction so you can match the same amount of passes coming the other direction.
