My problem is building my workbench. I’ve laid 2×8 vertically. The problem is with my end 2×8, it doesn’t seam to want to plane. I can plane my whole bench except the last board. the plane just glides across the wood like there is no blade in my plane. I can get small shavings if I go against the grain. (it takes beautiful shavings from any other piece of wood) I have a No.4 and No.6 from WoodRiver and they both act the same way. I’ve tried deeper cuts, and turning my plane at an angle. But nothing seams to work. If you take the blade out of your plane and heavily wax the sole, and then try to use your plane, that’s exactly how this feels.
