I use a planner all the time. The trick is to mill a scrap 2X4 about 1” or so wide × the thickness of the cutting board.
Glue it on the tail end of the cutting board so the it goes through the planner last. Make the 2X4 a little longer than the cutting board is wide. Plain away. This will prevent it from blowing apart as it passes through the planner. Very light cuts will help to limit the time you will spend with the RO sander. Take your time with the final glue up and you have a better chance at getting a flat board. I do 4 or 5 boards at a time. Never fails I get in a rush and a board comes out with a bad wobble.
