+1 on Fridge s comment. Plane it to 0.150” and rip 1/2” strips, or plane it to 1/2” and rip 0.150” strips. Either way will get you there.

Personally, I’d plane to 0.150 and rip the 1/2” strips since for a spline the thickness will need to be spot-on but the width might not need to be as precise, unless the end of the spline is visible I guess.
