I’m a bit new to hand planes. I have the Veritas #4 smoothing plane, and I’ve already sharpened the blade using japanese waterstones and Veritas’ honing guide. It produces perfect shavings but the problem is that it leaves small ridges on the wood and I read that you have to “camber” the blade to get rid of them. I got the camber roller that replaces the straight one on my honing guide, but I have a couple of questions about adding a camber.
1. Since my blade is freshly sharpened, do I camber the primary bevel or just the microbevel?
2. 1000 grit or straight to polishing stone?
3. How much camber?
