more info on Bailey Planes specifically. Thanks Brink!

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

Further Help on Planes

I read the above links and they were helpful but want to see if anyone has any resources on how to get a “textured” look with planes and more specifically, what are they called and what blade would I use etc. I’m not looking to smooth the surface but rather to distress and give it a hand hewn look.

Does that make sense? Any advice is appreciated and thanks in advance.

That would be a scrub plane or a plane fitted with a grooved comb shaped blade, the name escapes me.

It's a toothed blade. Not really used for texture, but to take down tough spots, or a prep before veneering.
