I have used some recycled warped boards to do my bench-top.
After laminating the 3 best ones, I cut the next one in two, straightened one face of each half, glued them to the first 3 ones. Then I planed the other edge of the two glued board perpendicular to the obtained top.
Next I took the next warped board and repeated except that I cut it in three parts in such a way that the but joint would not be at the same place along the bench-top.
Rince and repeat.
If you look at an IKEA kitchen counter-top , you will see they made them with multiple boards along the length.
With this method one looses a minimum of wood.
It was an interesting work … and the price of free recycled boards.
