How about a quick and easy to make jig, a router planer jig. Here is one I did recently…

The router is screwed to the top piece and then that is slid over the bottom tray holding the board in place. You could add guiding blocks to the bottom piece so that the top slides across in a straight line and then keep moving those as you move across the board. I wish I added guide blocks as I had to do some sanding after to remove the router marks, but this got it perfectly flat and level on both sides and was very quick to use.

Do an LJ search for router planers and you’ll find some other designs of this, this was just a quick and easy one though.
