Getting two equal pieces takes some practice, and a good blade. I still get uneven pieces and I’ve done this several times. I’m still getting the hang of how to account for the kerf width of the saw blade. So even without any cupping, the best you could expect from 8/4 would be two pieces slightly under 1” thick. I assume your trying for 3/4”? It’s gonna be real close with any amount of cup in the board.
