The stock is from a local sawmill that “rescues” wood from land clearing operations and hurricane damage. I glued up “scraps” to make the 10”x 14” panels. They are a shade under 3/4”. I was thinking of planing them a little every 2 or 3 day until I reach the desired thickness. This would let the wood move in stages with the end result, hopefully, being a flat and stable panel. Am I pushing rope up a hill? I can switch to white oak plywood for the panels but the customer (wife) really likes the look of the live oak. I have to admit the grain patterns are pretty nice.
I appreciate everyone’s help.
