If you rip the width of the boards down to less than 3” you can run them through your table saw just enough to remove the finish and flatten the surfaces. Use feather boards to keep the pieces against the fence if necessary. I’m concerned that using the belt sander to remove the finish and grooves may leave a slightly uneven surface.
A planer or drum sander would work best but you lack access so go with what you have.
If you think you will use the wood for end grain cutting boards just a light sanding of the finish would due. Then glue the pieces together with a urethane glue (Gorilla glue).....a very thin application is all that is needed.
