Planers are used to trim wood when the amount needed to be removed is too thin to cut with a circular saw or other type of saw. For example: If your bedroom door rubs and scratches the floor, you may want to take 1/8" off the bottom of it. That's a difficult cut to make with a saw blade that's as wide as or even wider than the excess material being removed. Makita has portable handheld planers that can trim your bedroom door and some can even cut down that 12-1/4" board needed for your next project in one pass.
