If you try to machine the patterned surface flat, you lose the color-a quarter of an inch, perhaps only an eighth of an inch and it is gone. Don't machine that surface! Hand-plane it, following the warp; if possible, make careful saw-cuts on each side of the color (so as not to spoil its pattern) right through the plank. Then re-saw to a thickness which is suitable for, let us say, a single door containing that rare pat42 tern. An odd, fascinating door, a bit twisted yes-but so nice!
