I had the same issue with some red oak and also share a hatred for sanding. I was lucky enough to be given a veritas scraper plane and it has worked well, with exception of the nails on a chalkboard noise it makes, using ear protection for hand tools is strange.

Be sure to research burnishing and get a good burnisher, that can be the difference between the wispy curls you want and the powdery tear out you dont.
