Never mill the wood until you’re ready to use it.
I have purchased too many pre-milled boards to save for “future projects” and now the future is here and the wood has gone its own way…ie: warped , twisted , cupped , discolored.
It was milled to 3/4” stock and now some of it I will be lucky to get 1/4”-1/2” stock after re-milling it.
Leave it be , because once you open up one face and edge as suggested above , you will throw the moisture balance off and ruin your boards in no time. You have nothing to gain !!

-- I'm absolutely positive that I couldn't be more uncertain!
