Step 1:

first joint your fire wood so it has 2 flat sides that are at a 90 degree angle.

Step 2:

make sure your band saw has a nice long fence and set your saw to your desired measurement plus some extra. this will give you something to plane off for a smooth surface. a deep/wide blade is recommended.
take your time and keep your wood square and flush to your bed and fence.

Step 3:

then cut off the unwanted bark portion.
you can also do this on a table saw if available.

Step 4:

now run it through your planer on each side and you'll have a beautiful piece of usable wood for your projects!
