Mauricio – Have you moved out on this yet? I would sure think about ripping this bad boy into four or five pieces then squaring those up prior to regluing. It’ll cost you four kerfs in total depth of your bench, but should likely save more than a half inch of thickness… And they don’t have to be equal pieces; I say that so you can avoid messing with the pithy parts of the boards. My .02. Good luck!
