Can you order a 8×4 (grain runs 48” direction)
Otherwise I have done the same as AlaskaGuy

This is usually a custom layup. Some distributors stock them, but, it is usually at the request of some large operation that is buying units and units of them. (Red Oak and Maple in my market)
If no one like that is buying tons of them where you live, good luck finding 8×4’s of any species.

If you can press your own veneers, it is relatively easy to seam your veneer flitches and laminate 8X4 yourself.
( also stocks a pretty good variety of 8×4 veneers ready for your press – 30 species/cuts. Just don’t forget a balancing backer sheet)

I suppose it all depends on how desperately you want no seams as to how much effort you put into this endeavor.
