Jointing edges
thicknessing after a resaw
clean up dovetail joints after a glue up.
Flattening a glued up panel
Beveling an edge
Making a raised panel
smoothing a surface to be ready for a finish.

Some planes will do rebates, dados, tongue & groove joints, and moldings
Block planes to shoot an end of a board, and knock the sharp edges off the edges of boards.
