Any update on how this worked out for you?

I have a similar project with white oak crotch wood "veneer" slices.  The product will need to be 16" wide and 4' long.  We have the fresh cant and are ready to saw it into thin slices.  Just need to figure out how to dry it.
As Gene advised, Sawn thin and stickered on 12” centers, with low air flow worked well. Because of the grain the sheets distorted a little, but still could be pressed flat during glue up.

and a mix of log handling heavy equipment.

I would be leary to use aluminum, I think stainless would be much better. Aluminum likes to oxidize and leave black lines.
