Keeping newly purchased wood from moving after bringing it to the shop will never be 100% successful. For this reason, I prefer to buy either in the rough or partially milled to “hit or miss” thickness. Basically, since the wood seldom stay flat, I’d rather do my own flattening right before starting the project.

If possible, buy wood from a dedicated supplier of furniture grade hardwoods. That will solve half your problems and save some money too.
