I was planning Cherry and also soft maple. I will take picture in a bit to and post them for reference. With regards to the question about sole lapping, I did lap the sole starting out with 80 grit and went up too 220.

the whole reason I am started this was i keep hearing people talk about glass like finish and for the most part it is leaving a glass like finish but there are streaks of dull areas the track with the path of the iron. I really don’t know what to expect or to look for.

I just know that I enjoy using a hand plane and I hate sanding and I was hoping to keep sanding to a minimum.
