I’ve cuaght a bit of cutting board fever! thing is after the initial glue up, and the secondary end grain exposed glue up the boards are far to big for my jointer and tening to be just to big for the planer. As such im looking to bu my first hand plane or possibly planes. (and appropriate sharpening tools too boot) The exciting thing is I plan to spend the wad and go for some of the best right off the bat! I figure this should get all the hand plane junkies in a really tithy! I want to get a veritas (gotta support my fellow canadians eh, not to mention by the sounds of it they make quite a product) but i just dont know which one is the ideal for the task of smoothing up boards after glue up and ultimatly making them flat for the second glue up exposing the end grain.
masters of the planes please share your wisdom
