You’ll still need to sand a surface before you finish it. I don’t care how good you are with a plane, once you apply finish and the light hits it, you will see imperfections. Think of your plane as a surface prepper that lead the way for a cabinet scraper and 150/ 220 random orbit sander process. Excellence in furniture often times is reflected in how careful and conscientious the finishing process was considered. Sanding sucks, that’s is why getting a great surface from a super sharp plane first makes it suck less.
