OHHHH YEAH Skyrim!
I went through the same trouble. Here's a small little tip: Your smithing level determines how high you can upgrade stuff! That's right! 90 is required for Daedric, but even higher is required for upgrading it!
Now you'll reach level 100 and realize, "Huh, I can't level up anymore, yet there's options for upgrading the sword"
Now what do you do? Here's what you do! You can actually push your smithing past 100! Just level up your enchanting and alchemy.
1. Make a potion that increases your enchanting
2. Drink that potion, and enchant some clothes that increase alchemy
3. Wear those clothes, and make a potion that increases enchanting
4. Drink that potion, create new clothes that increase alchemy.
Keep doing that! You'll super boost your alchemy and enchanting. Once it's high enough, making clothes AND a potion that increases smithing. Use/drink those before you hit the grinding wheel and PRESTO, you've got a sword that reaches into the thousands/millions (If you enchant it)
