It depends on the slabs you want to dimension….....

An ideal set would be a block plane to a jointer. But you are limited to two planes…...

Let’s say your work piece is greater than 3 feet long and you ABSOLUTELY need it flat then
go for LV bevel up jointer.

LV LA jack plane can dimension the board down pretty quickly but can’t bet a scrub plane. It also
serves as a shooting plane.

Scrub plane…. If you have thick slabs and many of them. Then this is an must.

For the LV BU and Jack you need multiple blades. 25 to 50. Tooth depends on your wood if it is figured.
After choosing the 2 plane above. Go get a LA Block plane with it’s multiple blade. It is amazing. I already own
a standard block plane from LV combined with the LV DX block plane. Good enough :)
