How long is the board in question?
From a mechanical perspective, many hand planes are too short to really flatten a long board. A huge hand plane might be 12-18” long. Compare that to a 76” power jointer.
Imagine using a 12” long power jointer, and expecting a flat and straight edge.
I think there are techniques that can improve hand planing, however the physics of it will always be limited compared to a power jointer.
