Handplanes will work but there appears to be some tricky grain in that slab that may frustrate you. Id go with the router sled or take it somewhere that has the capability to run it through a drum sander for you. All depends on your tooling, available time and money.

Nice chunk o lumber there regardless. Welcome to the gang.
