    I'd say that unless your thickness planer is a particularly good one with perfectly setup pressure rollers you will shatter a lot of wood. Any big local mill shop will have a thickness sander and that is the best solution.

    It's got strings! It sounds good although I'm not satisfied with the frets, they may get redone. All in all I think it's a decent first try, enough so that I'm going to try another one..........tiptoe through the tulips.

    My shop built thickness sander for the wood lathe works ok, but its very awkward to use as I have to push the stock through, let go of it at the wrong moment and it flings the workpiece across the shop. I splurged and ordered one of these and it arrived today. It makes thicknessing stock much easier,it was nicely set up right out of the box and I really like the motorized feed table.I'm looking forward to "thinning" some backs,tops and sides for another ukulele. They'll go through the planer to as thin as I dare, about 3.5 mm and then get taken down to working size of less than 2mm on the new sander.
