I know this is kinda “old school” (and I’m new here), but as someone else pointed out, a planer won’t remove twist etc from a board. Google “Using Winding Sticks” to see how two parallel pieces of wood (or aluminium or anything else you have), can be used along with a hand plane to get your project flat. It’s not difficult, and you’ll be learning another skill that’s been used by woodworkers for generations.

Whilst this isn’t usually something necessary for something as short as a cutting board, I didn’t think this was totally unrelated to the original point.
