I was planning on using my thickness planer by taking very light cuts. Not advisable? I was hoping that by taking shallow cuts I could avoid problems. Hand planing is an option for me, yes.

I’ve seen it done where you glue long grain boards to the infeed and outside ends (basically frame the cutting board). This protects the end grain edges when the board leaves the planer. A couple of quick passes on the table saw removes them after the board is flat.

Of course you will probably get some tear out or other issues where you will still need to spend some time sanding.
