You need a jointer and a planer. Any amount out of flat is going to translate the error to the rest of the project. You ll just frustrate yourself and waste wood until you do it right.

That’s not possible for me – I do woodworking in my living room. I also want to use hand tools as much as I can – people managed for hundreds of years without a jointer and a planer so I’m sure I can too.
