Short pieces can be done with push-pads…just plan on getting the shallowest cut you can get and repeat (and repeat). Biggest drawback is the tendency to “taper” the board but with shallow passes I’ve never seen a problem with flipping the board head to tail. On my Delta 6” I learned to do that same thing even on longer stock once the really cupped surface is removed. And another thing…keep your tables and fence “slick” (I use Johnson’s paste wax)...”drag” is a safety hazard I think.
