What? Glue lines will not damage a handplane.

For flattening a glued up panel would you use a smoothing plane? Would the dimensions of the wood determine your choice of plane? I’m assuming that you panels would already be pretty flat before glue up.

I will not try so as the sole will get damaged. For smoothers it is very important to have pristine sole.
But it depends on your space and budget. If you have a #4 only then there is no choice. It becomes your
jack plane.
