I would like to build a bench using maple. I want to make the top close to 3″ thick and 30″x78″. I am worried about keeping it flat while I glue it up and thinking of gluing one board at a time. I would like to use 8/4 lumber but the cost is 50% more. I understand 4/4 would produce a more stable bench. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks.
