I was wondering the same, but I think the planning should be part of the milling process – and should be done on each piece individually prior to glueing up – making the next step after glue up as simple as cleaning and some sanding.

Also it’s easier to mill smaller pieces then large ones – not to mention that it really depends on how large your glue up are going to be – sometimes they are larger than the planer all together. plus you won’t have to plane those glue joints – which is only a good thing…
