I think exelectrician is pretty much got it. You want to use the fact that, assuming you’ve squared up your 4×4 to start that you already have 4 of the eight sides, and you only need to establish 2 of the remaining 4 because the last 2 are each parallel to one of the ones you just established and can be got using your planer. You might have to be a bit careful planing to get one of these last two sides, ie. make sure the thing doesn’t teeter on the side on the planer bed. Double side tape it to a wider piece if necessary to get stability.
