I routinely sharpen my iron before smooth planing the top of a dresser. This is a show surface, much more important than the bottom of a drawer or even the side of the case. Bill did not do this, and apparently did not even think to sharpen when he ran into trouble. I would not want to rule out sharpness as a possible solution.
