Hello everyone !
I’m trying to remove a bow from a piece of cherry. Should I plane the convex or concave side first? I just used my 13” planer for the first time on this past Sunday.
I have a Rigid planer.

to get the bow out you need to joint the board first then run it through the planer, if you just run it through the planer you will get a thinner board with a bow.

Ditto, If its not to bad or you don’t have a joiner, You can use a hand plane.
