I got a good deal on some mohogany. The left stack the wood is less than 12”. The right stack the wood is wider than it is long. Should I build some kind of sled or some thing else? Thanks.

Drum sander would be my first choice.

I don’t have a drum sander. I have orbital and belt sander. I also have a 12” planer.

I would use hand planes for pieces that small, too dangerous for the power planer without elaborate jigs.

A hand plane would be my weapon of choice as well. Quick and easy.
