I am handplaning a large piece of walnut with a stanley #5. It’s a rough cut piece of wood. As I plane it I’m getting decent shavings, but little lines where the edges of the iron pass are formed every time I make a pass. When I sharpened the iron I did not put much of a camber on the blade.
These ridges/lines are visible but you cannot really feel them if you run your hand over them.
I plan on sanding it after planing it. Will these lines sand out? Do I need to sharpen my blade differently? Currently I use a granite slab with sandpaper and a sharpening guide, and I’m not able to make the jump to waterstones quite yet.
