I was thinking about just running each piece back through the bandsaw to shave the thicker parts with a sacrificial piece on the trim side so I can hold it tight against the fence.

Don’t joint across the grain. Even if you had a thickness planer, that’s too small to run through one. Since it’s pine, you should be able to get a decent result just by sanding. It’ll take some patience and care to maintain a flat surface, but pine is pretty soft. Just take your time and you’ll get there.

As Rich said, sanding is your best option, but I’d have to ask you if the effort is worth it for something so small? Sounds like it’s a small enough project that you can chalk it up as part of your learning curve and retry your project with another piece of wood.

BTW are you using a fence to help you with your resawing?

Thanks for the replies. I will try some more hand sanding as rich mentioned. It can’t get any worse. Lumbering-on I did use a fence and a feather board. I have had decent luck in the past with re-sawing (I don’t do a lot or anything big). Not sure why this one drifted so much.

How sharp is the BS blade? Tooth count?

Its only got a few cuts on it. 14tpi 3/8 blade. I know this isn’t a great resaw blade, but its all they had when my other one dulled. I never remember to get another until Im doing something and need it and then it hits me..”Oh ya I forgot to get a variety of blades for my bandsaw”!!
