Jeff, I think the first problem is that your tablesaw blade is pinching the work against the fence when you’re resawing the pieces. That’s where the majority of your burnt faces are coming from. If it’s not that, then you’re simply feeding the wood through way too slow.

For the clean-up, any of the methods you mentioned will work. If it were me, I’d go with the handplane. The 4” size you have is perfect for the job. Just make sure you’re iron is sharp and you’re not trying to take too much of a cut. It will only take you a few swipes with the plane to remove the burn marks most likely. My second choice would be a card scraper but the edge will likely need to be re-hooked during the process and rolling a hook on a scraper isn’t a simple task.

Best of luck!
