Sometimes the right plane, at the right time, works best

Diagonals with a cambered jack to start to flatten

A #6 or #7-#8 Jointer to go the length to “Try” the board

A smooth plane either in the #3 or #4 size to smooth the plane mark out.

Edges are the domain of the jointer planes. When there is a single shaving from end to end, stop.
