You can use a router on skis. Use the forum search for that subject to see how to do it. You could also build a sled that the router would sit on that would work about the same.

Making skis for your router is one solution. Doing it "the old way" with your hand plane is another. (You'll likely need to plane it a bit after using the router, anyway.) Or, if there is a cabinet shop in your area, you might ask them what they would charge to run the stock through their thickness planer.

David, a very common mistake is to apply too much clamping pressure when gluing up panels. This is a major cause of misalignment. (been there, done that) You only need enough pressure to hold the edges together. Something else that helps is to build a set of clamping cauls. Cauls help keep the panels aligned. You will find a photo shoot of how to build them on the forums.
