According to handplane bacis on the Woodqwright’s shop. I happened to have a pine 2x about that same size, so sent the jack planes along the edges, first.
But all they did was make some curlie things
Then clamped the board so I could do a face grain thingy. Again the jack plane made things almost flat, bt going at the face at a 45 degree “Traverse”. Then out came MY triplane to TRY things
Went at the same angle as the jack plane, until a better shaving appeared, then a few swipes along the grain
Not too bad for an old #6? Ok with things about flat, time for the smooth planes to try their luck.
Millers Falls #9 aka Dunlap #4D BB. About the same as a M-F #9. Next
THE M-FF #9. It liked to make curlie things. And finally
The Wood river #4 V3 took it’s turn. Surface is now glass smooth and flat, knot and all
Say what you like, but the system does work..
