I know what your thinking. Here the part where you have to pay attention to. Hiding the joint between the two boards along the edge. If you just flip them it’s a book match. You run the risk of creating a witness line that is easily spotted esp in the right light.
This might look like two thin boards
This happens a lot with book matched panel as the grab light one side is dark one side is light.
The key to your success is careful selection of your outside boards so you can create a slipmatched joint.
Good luck and always go with the grain.
