Best Answer...


- Planes –
Planes have a single purpose; all they do is smooth wood, that’s it! But which ones will you have in your carpentry tool list? Planes remove a thin shave of wood on each pass, that’s about the thickness on a piece of paper, not much! But say you had a gap in your wood work that was the same thickness as, say 5 sheets of paper, can you now see how important the plane is. Like always life is never simple and there’s a variety to choose from, each designed for a different task.

Jack Plane
The plane is designed to be used for long periods of time as it is light enough to handle, yet long enough to smooth out bumps.Jack planes allow you to remove excess wood and flatten sawn timber.

Fore Plane
This is in between the jack plan and try plane, you can use as a go an in-between model.

This plane gives you the finishing touches. The smoothing plane has a blade with rounded edges, helping it not to catch the wood. The rounded edges allow the plane to follow the grain, unlike the other panes that slice through the wood. The following the grain will make you work to become smoother.
