Okay, Bryan. I have both a recommendation and a suggestion:

Recommendation: Contact Randy Maxey, Senior Editor of ShopNotes Magazine. He’s a master with the smoothing plane. I sat in on a seminar with Randy at a Woodsmith seminar and learned a lot.

Since then I have restored my grandfather’s old Shelton No. 9 plane and it works wonderfully.

Suggestion: Practice on scrap glueups before you ever touch your project. It’ll save you lots of frustration as well as save your project.

Once you learn this technique you’ll not only use it more often, but use it with confidence. Good luck!
