Only guessing (a SWAG)

Critical dimensions arise at the intersection of parts to be joined.

My SWAG is that panels to be fitted were brought to thickness and into plane with a Rebate or Fillister, where needed.

For chairs, or curved work I expect Spokeshaves were employed.

So much of this was lost when kiln dried ( and machine planed ) stock became widely available.
