I’ve only used the scrub for the few areas that needed a lot of material removed first. Otherwise, I’ve been using the jack plane, then the try plane, both set thin. The issue isn’t going down through the wood too fast, its being unable to tell where the line is without stopping every five seconds to look from the side. I’ll give the pencil line a try.

The2×4s were ripped from 2×12s, and are mostly straight. Some are fairly bowed, and these will be the practice pieces.
