Hi Jeremy ,
I realize the sample picture was just that….my statement was if it was 3/4” to start with , you can pretty much eyeball the “sample” board and see that you would lose 2/3 of it to planing or sanding, and I offered a process that has worked for me on numerous occasions : )
If you take a look at your drum sander , you will find that there are rollers in it as well….well , at least there are in my Delta and Ryobi models as well as my Performax brand.
They push down on the boards and apply pressure to keep the board against the feed belt so your boards don’t shoot back out at you from the rotation of the drum : ) I have plenty of experience with drum sanders , and have saved more than a few cupped boards , it’s just that they ended up much thinner in the end despite taking off very little at a time to flatten them : )

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