12strings, for pronounced cupping or warping, unless it is a narrow board, I use a jointer plane. In fact, I have an 8” board on the bench that is cupped pretty badly and I am going to use the jointer on it. You want to span the high spots and take them down as evenly as possible to keep as much wood on the board as possibe.

I use a scrub plane to remove a lot of stock quickly, but I don’t use it for flattening. A scrub plane has a big camber on it. I actually use two #5s; one with a straight honed blade and one with a slight camber. Those cover everything I need so far.

Good Luck!
