Thanks everyone for the great advice. I did some tweaks to further improve the coplanar nature of the two beds. That, plus @gfadvm’s advice seems to be the ticket. I think I was planing the concave, not convex sides, hence the boards turning up on the back end. Thanks so much to everyone. Definitely some technique involved with the jointer.

One last dorky question. When face jointing boards under 3/4” my boards often get caught under the blade guard. I have tried to position the push blocks as i move them along so it keeps the blade guard from flipping over the board, but I don’t think this is really the design point. Thoughts?
