Hey guys,

I have a question about hand planer's. I am looking at the Veritas planer's sold by Lee Valley.

I have a 13" thickness planer but am looking for a hand plane that I can use to plane the joining edges of larger laminate projects (I hope this makes sense). For example, if I need to make a project that requires a 24" laminate hardwood top, I would put a 13" laminated piece of wood through my thickness planer, then a 11" piece through and later I would laminate the 2 pieces together and hand plane the part where the 2 pieces meet up.

I was looking at getting the Veritas #4 smooth plane. Am I even looking at the right plane for this job? If not, can you please provide input on the proper Veritas plane (I only say Veritas because it is available to me) Any input from you experts would be much appreciated! Also, I should add that I would prefer to stick with getting just one plane, considering the $$$

Cheers,

Adam
