Though I own a powered jointer and planer, I always keep a scrub plane close by. It’s good for dressing boards that are too wide for my powered equipment, or for adding a scalloped texture to the surfaces of rustic pieces.

Some woodworkers make their own scrub planes from vintage planes by filing open the mouth and grinding a severe curve to the blade, but I’ve always preferred the real thing. Scrub planes are simpler, have a thicker iron and are built specifically for the task.
