Rectangular narrow faces are planed in the following working steps:
- Coarse unevenness is removed by the jack plane and the smooth plane.
- Subsequently, the narrow face is worked by means of the trying plane,
. the trying plane is moved completely over the total length of the workpiece;
. a square, planed strip held by one hand at the face of the plane facilitates the rectangular move of the trying plane.

1 trying plane, 2 held strip, 3 workpiece
Exact planing of rectangular narrow faces is checked as follows:
- Straightness by
. applying a batten onto the narrow face;
. joining workpieces belonging together according to the light-gap method.
- Squareness by placing a 90° steel square to the wide face.
When sighting, a hardly noticeable light gap must be visible between the square and narrow face.
