Yeah lapping the sole and honing the blade should be one of your first steps. Those WoodRiver planes have a good rep, so it shouldn’t take too much work. Once you have the plane setup and ready, try to take some shavings again. Put pressure on the front of the plane at the beginning of your stroke and the end at the end. Try closing up the throat as well.
