Sorry to say this is the curse of construction lumber, it’s VERY difficult to keep this lumber straight with the moisture content and common reaction wood in it. What is your final application? Will the ” rustic” adjective work to explain some hills and valleys or are you going for a dead flat table? Toughest part of this hobby is the need to control so much of the stock, and these sorts of frustrations are what lead me to finding a good sawyer that kiln drys and then a jointer and planer of course… But know you’re not the first at least, and there are some folks who’ll cut kerfs on the underside and force flat erc but I can’t offer any advice on those methods, I don’t do any thing with reclaimed wood where it’s often the only way to get a board flat. Good luck let us know how you fix it

-- I've decided 1 mistake is really 2 opportunities to learn.. learn how to fix it... and learn how to not repeat it
