I would be wary of anyone who offers kiln dried wood that thick, it just
can't be done properly. It would have to be air dried, and if under 6-8
years, probably isn't dry. You are better off to start with a reasonably dry
log, if you absolutely have to have it out of a single piece. This will
probably limit stock choices.
I had an order recently for a table base that was 14" round at one point,
and had to glue up the stock . Even in Maple, it's hard to find kiln dried
