The short answer is yes, you can take several passes off one of the points of the crown, Often, that is what is needed

internal stress can be a pain
if this is for a door, so why do you need a 12 foot piece?
for a 3 -0×6 -8 allow 2 at 7 + and 1 at 4 depending on the width of the molding (shorter are easier)

I rough my stock a little wide and then rejoint and rip again. (add 1/4 to 3/8 more if it is really squirrelly)
It wastes wood, but you get a product that is nicer to work with. (yes, I take the time and make my molding straight)

Not sure where 12’ came from, more like 7 feet, but I cut a little long, my rough stock is only 10’.
They are about 7/8 thick, so pretty stout.
