I would say go for it. You’ll really never know until you’ve tried it. I did a similar thing with a very large chunk of cherry and ended up with 5 5” pieces that I glued up alternating the cup and have had 0 issues. You could cut that piece and end up swith something that looks like waves on the ocean, and in that case, I think you could still salvage the wood and Mike suggested and use for something else.

Cut it in half, let it sit for a while, see what it looks like. Plane it to thickness, wait and see. If you’re good at that point, you’re probably in the clear.
