If it were me I would go ahead and get the riser block.

As far as planing thin stock one trick that you can use is to glue two boards of equal size together. Put the glue only on in a a 1” wide band on the back edge of the boards. Clamp the glued edge and when the glue is dried put the boards through the planer. Take light passes (1/32” or less) on both sides until you have reached 2x the thickness that you want. Saw the glued edge off the two boards and you have two boards that are planed to a thickness less than your planer is supposedly capable of doing. But I would not recommend doing this for veneers. They are just too thin.
