AnthonyC...Well I’d keep as much of the patina and all the character as possible. It would make a great trestle table top. I’d plane one face (the face you don’t want to be the “money” side) of each board of the top to a uniform thickness and joint the edges . Plan ahead so that you joint only the edges for gluing up edge to edge…keep one edge of the two outside boards as is. Glue the boards together with the” money” faces up and the surfaced faces down (underside of the table top) and two unjointed edges to the outside. That way you would have all the character that you want and the top would be a consistent thickness. Breadboard the ends
