I need and answer please? I'm trying to finish coffee table the top. I had a lot of tearout from useing a hand plane instead of the elec. one. It went from the saw mill to me. I just finished a video explaining proper plane technique, and sharpening. My planes are all sharpened strait accross. That didn't help the situation. They are not supposed to be. I hit it with a belt sander first, then a random orbit . I just got done sanding both sides 50-60-100-150 grit. I thought I got all the tearout. I didn't. How noticeable will this tearout be? I'm just using tung oil and wax. Should I start over and get it all or just finish it? If I do sand out the tearout I'm assuming I'll have dips so I will need to do the whole serface.
