I have taken oversized panels to an industrial shop with a 50” wide drum sander. The glue had cured for a few days before it was sanded. The panels came out of the drum sander flat, smooth and straight. Perfect.

In time (months) small ridges will develop at the joint lines. That’s seasonal movement. It’s usually not a problem with 3/4” thick panels, but can be noticeable on 5/4 and thicker panels. Some panels do it, some panels don’t. I really believe that if you start with wood that wasn’t adequately dry (or picked up some moisture in the shop) it magnifies the problem.

Your experience may vary.
Good luck with it.
