It depends upon how precise you need to be. If you’re planning on slicing 2” wide shavings at .001” thickness, you’ll need to get those soles and blades very flat. If you’ve got .002” variations in your plane setup, those .001” shavings aren’t going to happen.

I just use my jointer table for my flattening surface. Since I mostly use planes for the occasional quick job, I’m not concerned about getting that perfect setup. My shavings are a little thicker than the ideal for a proper smoothing plane.
