I have used a lot of twisted, bowed,curved etc. rough lumber without having much waste. It is pretty easy to select a 3 foot or less section and finish planing it to get full thickness beautiful lumber.

Most long boards will have some of the above defects, if you try to full length plane the board you will end up with undersized thickness. I always pick out the section I need and cut it a little long for trimming before I final plane!
