To me joining would probably make sense anyway, have to be hell of a thickness to hold flat at 1.2m wide so going to weigh half a ton. Guess you could try to find something like cedar, be a bit lighter than oak or ash.

Agreed tbh also looking at a sawmill I’ve used a lot called Turnex in Welwyn and there proposing the same.

at 1.2m wide unless you have some serious underside bracing in place any slab will crown significantly......I recomend you use 3 or even 4 pieces with the grain alternating and either biscuit or spline jointed, if you could source them from the same log the grain structure will match
