Ok so I went and bought Veritas MK II Honing Guide and a 8000 water stone. So know I have a 1000, 4000, and 8,000 grit stones and the honing guide. So I went back to sharpening the blade last night and got it all back together. This time I really think that I did get the blade sharp.

Straightbowed: I tried what you were talking about with the grain and I did see a difference with the wood.

But it is still being a little difficult and and do still get some snip in the board. Here are pictures for the shavings and the throat of the plane.

So what am I doing wrong?
