Agreed with the suggestion of a low angle jack or smoother plane, but I’d also had good results with a card scraper or scraper plane. Just be mindful of chip-out along the edges, a slight bevel will solve it, so I typically just kiss all the edges with a router.

Beyond that, a better R/O sander. Just ordered myself a Bosch 1250 after borrowing a Festool Rotex for an afternoon, so much better than my little Dewault R/O. I have a pneumatic DA sander as well that works great, not as well as the Festool did, but much better than a normal R/O and if you already have a good air compressor it’s not an expensive tool to add to the arsenal.
