There are several factors that will impact how easily you can true boards, but probably the most important is practice. Don’t get discouraged if your first few (or several) attempts aren’t perfect. There aren’t many that will get perfection with hand tools, so don’t expect that. If someone is going to put a micrometer on something that you made and start telling you that one edge is .001” thicker/thinner than another edge, take the piece and smack him with it.
