Allow for expansion and contraction, and you’ll be ok. What are the dimensions?
If I remember correctly the general rule of thumb is to allow an 1/8” per each foot of width. This is assuming that the boards are flat sawn. And each species varies. So look up the specification for your wood and calculate how much you’ll need to allow for.
