The risk with short or very thin pieces is that the leading end can tip up slightly and get caught by the planner head and send it upwards. A sled can help but that doesn't mean there is zero risk in doing it. Taped down will also help but the tape can only hold so much. I think skis or sled is probably safest since you can adjust for a very thin bite and the force is sideways on the piece with no tendency to lift it up.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Stick, I saw no mention of resawing early on in this string. And even if it is resawn, the same problem arises with flattening and the same methods apply.

Sorry, took me a while to find this. If the OP is trying to clean up a resawn board, this would work by sticking the original flat side to some double-sided tape and using a planer bit to clean up the sawn surface/finish to the required thickness.

That would work esp since I am just taking a very small amount off to true up a surface. !!!! Thanks!
