I needed to true up a piece of cherry and didn’t have an edge plane or very good hand plane skills. Clamped a square piece of oak on a Bailey No. 5 and it worked surprisingly well.

That’s what’s called ingenuity. Great tip.

I have done the same thing in the past. Eventually the training wheels can come off, just takes practice.

edge planes are under-rated.

machos tend to say “you don’t need that, you can do it by blah blah blah.” yeah you can, more slowly, innacurately, and iteratively.

plane, check it, plane, check it, plane, check it. and then you may need to joint it again.

edge plane for the win.
