All good points on metal in the wood. I’d certainly look around for a used planer.

Something to think about – getting them flat wont take the same amount of weathered wood from the surface, so you will end up with texture/color differences in a surface. If you wanted a “clean” surface, by the time you surface them, glue them into a panel, and flatten the panel, you may be less than 3/4”. Remove as little as possible before glue up, then flattening/cleaning up may leave enough thickness.

How do you plan to flatten the glued up table top?
