The only experience that I've had with Rosewood is turning pens. As for router planing I wonder what type of bit you used, also the size of the router and diameter of the rods. It is of course imperative that the ski assy. is operated from the end cheeks, NOT from the router itself, also that the ski rod diameter is large enough not to sag.
An even better bit to the bottom cleaning one shown in the router is a dish cutter as shown in the last shot. My experience planing many types of wood is that only minimal sanding is required.
