The smoothing plane is typically the last plane used on a wood surface. When used properly, it produces a finish that equals or surpasses that made by sandpaper. The smooth finish is the result of planing the wood off in strips, rather than by successive buffing and scratching. Smoothing planes are typically 8 to 10 inches long.
