Your so right Carl. Great web site. Once again my faith is restored in the lowly hand plane. Patience and perseverance. Dave – I am watching grain direction, but with Cherry it’s hard for me to tell. I did grind the corners down which helped a lot. Smitty – I’m heading to your blog for more lessons. Purplev – I’m having pretty fair luck with a card scraper, but need to flatten the tops more before I can use the scraper. Stumpy – Silly man, you can’t plane concrete with a wood plane. Besides, concrete is what I’m using to sharpen the blades. Don – My Stanley #6 is working pretty good. I think I just need to hone the blade along with my technic.

Thanks all for your input.
