Ok cool it's like a little jointer . I made a similar fixture for a belt sander were I laid the sander(in your case the planner) on a small piece of plywood and then made wooden shapes that fit in the handle holes and supported the bottom of the sander(planner). So the base would be two pieces of ply shaped like an "L"
one side of the "L" would be a base that you clamp to a table or bench and the other will have the shapes cut out to hold the planner. I'm not sure if your Bosch electric hand planes the same as mine but mine has a red guard that drops down so you can set the plane down while it's coasting to a stop. This could be a problem in using it in a fixture like this.

Sounds like a useful idea. I guess the width of the cutter is the limitation - it'll edge joint pretty effectively, but not be terribly useful for flattening wider planks.

Another method of edging planks is to use a router table with a split fence - set the out feed fence flush with the OD of a parallel cutter, and set the infeed in by the required depth of cut…..
