I also build rustic- If the extremely spongy stuff can be removed and the rest stabilized with epoxy I use it. I like the look of distressed wood, but like you I don’t want a piece of wood that is completely compromised.
Whether I can use the board, or only parts of the board depends on what I want to do with the wood, and where the soft sparts are. Try and sell it but it will probably to sold to someone who builds rustic/contemporary rustic. If you keep it yourself ENJOY IT! Build something really cool and post it online!
