this is the third or fourth time I needed to plane down the sides of hardwood edging,(faceframe) I glued to plywood edges.
I only own 2 planes, a clifton smoother and 3/4 inch shoulder plane.
I like the smoother, it planes so easily, but getting smooth and even with plywood I tend to shave into the plywood sides.
Is there a certain technique Im lacking, (not that I ever had any style or technique with hand planes). Should I hold the plane a certain way, stand on whichever side and plane away, towards, 45 degrees, gotta be a way, or is it just alot of practice.
I usually give the scraper a couple of pulls when I done planing just to get a very smooth feel, and that doesnt cut into the plywood.
sorry if its a silly question, Im lacking experience with hand tools, especially planes.
