If you are thinking door and window sash, exterior doors are usually 1 3/4”, so I doubt that’s what was in their minds. They made their plane 1 1/2”.
The 289 is 1 3/4”, has nickers on both sides, and for a time they even made an 1 7/8” version to allow for paint, I guess. So it nominally could do that. I originally got the plane to clean up sash in historic houses years ago. But nowadays it’s a pretty rare thing. And no way I’d use it for that now. You’d be surprised how many nails people put in old frames over the centuries.
The 289 does work well as a simple panel raising plane, so I’m guessing the Veritas version would as well. They show it raising panels in their ads. The skew really helps with end grain work.
Beyond that you are asking a lot more from a tool than what it was designed for.
If you want to make Sash today, you are probably better off with some version of a Stanley 10 1/2 with a batten for a guide.
