If you have been hand planing, and have rough spots now, does that mean that you have areas where the wood has been torn out by the planer blade? If that is so, you will have to smooth out those areas until the tear out is gone....or resort to using a wood filler.

For swirly grain wood it is better to use a sander to smooth out the board. Start at a course grit and work up to a fine grit, going through each grit step along the way.
