cutting the first scarf

To everyone who replied to the 'putting it off' message - thanks. It made me laugh reading them.

I had my first go at cutting a scarf (block plane) today. I used a piece of scrap 6mm exterior ply. The finished article looks ok apart from the 'feather edge' - As this edge became thinner it had a tendancy to break and pull away. Hoe can this be prevented.
