Nobody has mentioned the lowly little block plane. That is far and away the first plane to own. I can’t think of any thing I build that I don’t grab the block plane to break hard edges, shoot ends, adjust fits. It’s as essential as any tool I own.

Having said that, I will add that the second most useful is what Kenny said, the low angle jack. To me, every thig else is just refinements for specific jobs, but the jack and the block are the foundation.
