If you’re planing a 1/2 off of the original (5/4 down to 3/4) on a nine-foot board, that’s gonna cause a lot of shavings. I’d try to resaw it closer to 3/4 myself before planing it. Or sometimes I’ll get a lot of the material out with a scrub plane first as well.

So what happens when you try to plane off more stock at a time?
