    I flattened a 48" wide by 72" long slab two-three weeks ago with hand planes (I'm the only professional in my area that does this as far as I'm aware). It was a 5 hour job. I

    You'll have to joint by hand for the finished edges. What I would do is to buy rough lumber, have it machine jointed on one face and two edges. Hand plane, glue up into wide sections (16") have someone with a wide machine joint and plane those sections, then glue those two sections in place and hand plane the result.

    OK, good luck.

    Any reason not to do the above with 4S stock? (vs rough cut). Since the substrate and bar height were built assuming a 3/4" slab going on top, height is fine. (Another inch won't matter if it is taller). I'm just curious.

    I like some margin, so I don’t use S4S. It’s produced with a molder, so I don’t think it’s going to be perfectly straight over 20’. I’d rather have something jointed by hand fed machine and checked/paired with another board to ensure that the two edged match.
