The OP never replied if any of the comments helped him with his problem. Hopefully he’s alright : )

Jeremy , if the board in your sample picture was 3/4” to start with , it will end up at about 1/4” when finished , with no guaranty that it won’t cup all over again. Best thing to do would be to rip it down the middle and joint one face and then plane or sand the other side parallel. Glue the two together and you’ve just saved yourself a lot of time and materials. Purplev is correct and I have also had the same experiences through the years.

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