Am I mistaken in thinking that neither the planer nor the router would be ideal for pieces 3 to 6” long, as specified by the OP?
I think Gry’s suggestion has much merit for the task.

Didn't think a 3-6" piece would go through a planer properly...? Am I missing something...?

It won't. But with a planer sled I have no problems sending small pieces thru.

I'd try to plane the pieces before cutting them, if that's possible. Longer is better. That 735 is likely to be able to handle that on a sled.

For short pieces and, less than 1/8" thick stuff, I use dubble sided tape on a sled to send it thu the 735.
