Kenny’s right about the grain. However, the beauty of a low-angle plane like yours is that the blade is mounted bevel-up, so by sharpening it at higher angles you can affect its performance in wavy wood. Some users keep multiple blades sharpened at different angles and switch them out depending on the situation. You can even grind a blade blunt and then you’ll have a scraper plane.
