I m only months old in using handplanes. I ve currently fixed up two old ones and put them in use. I ve been just sharpening them using the same stones that I use for my pocket knives. I believe they are 200/600/1000. With that I am able to plane down the saw marks on rough cut boards but I don t get a satisfactory smoothed board lik it seems some of the guys in YouTube videos get. Should I invest in a smoother grit stone? For you folks that hav been at this for a while.. when u use ur handplanes does it make the board smooth and ready for finish or do u still clean it up with sandpaper?
