Normally called a "half lap miter" put together like this:
As for shoulder planes, I have a #92 that I got at an antique tool auction a number of years ago.
And a couple of bullnose
I got both of these over 20 years ago when I got interested in "old tools" Still use them to fine tune rabbets, tenons, and tongue and groove joints.

John for a strange reason I quit watching wood working shows long ago. I think I was happy with the way I did things and why would I want to change to another persons way. My wife would ask why I sat there and would argue with Norm or who ever it was I was watching.
Also doing wood working with the tools such as planes and the such is just not much fun. I do own maybe 50 hand planes and 20 or so of the spokeshaves, if this is the proper name for these?. And have a few more back in the corner somewhere and am too lazy to hang the rest of them up.
I really don't know. I will buy these things if there are any in the auctions I attend to redo but I never use any of them. Just not my cup of tea. I take a list of the names of these hanging up and will buy more if they are made by different makers. To me one is not worth more than the next one..
I think I am finally feeling my age. Hey I don't even enjoy backing the camper out and and seeing a different part of the country like I use to.
John you got lots of thoughts on your questions so I thought I would show the other side of wood working...my side..

Jess: Those are draw knives, not spoke shaves. They are used for initial shaping/smoothing of split or rived wood, usually used with a draw horse.

Thanks Jon I better go and check these other things I been collecting all these years . I might have been buying papeweights instead of wood planes......Matter of fact that is the only thing I use them for. Three of four of them will keep my plans from rolling back up.........I wonder if I got any spoke shaves.

The "Just-Right Joinery" in issue 204, page 20, featured "Super-Strong Mitered Half-Laps" and showed the technique for making them.
I'm with Keith on using the antique Stanley Bull-Nose plane...it works great for me! I have not felt the need to spend big bucks for new and shiny.
