it really depends on your array of tools at your disposal – for example, if you don’t have a jointer/planer – then a jointer plane should be your first pick, as it will let you square/parallel your rough stock – which is the beginning of each project, and to finish – you could get by with sanders/etc. if you do have a jointer/planer, but need a way to prepare your pieces for finishing – then your first pick should be a #4 smoothing plane…
