I’m with Russel, I’l skew with a #7 or 8 till flat. Take some long straight strokes with a #5 or 6, then make the fluffy stuff with the #4. Then scrape if necessary. Iusually like the appearance of a non-scraped surface, though.
That’s a helluva good outing for your 1st time with a #4. I just kept slamming mine to a dead stop in the wood. I can’t believe I kept after it.
