Have you taken an accurate square and tested the sides? What I see is the unfinished top not level with the bottom.
Anyway I am totally for scraping the planes sole flat, not the roll over the edges sanding that is called lapping in the woodworking world.
Anyway, scraping a plane sole is very worthwhile in my opinion, I have hand scraped more then a dozen, as so.
