Milling English Oak Stem

I have an oak stem that's been lying in its current position for four years (near London UK).

The stem measures as follows:
102cm Dia @ Above buttress flare
94cm Dia @ 1.5m
89cm Dia @ 3m
85cm Dia @ 5m
82cm Dia @ 7m

8.5m long (28')

I'm looking to mill using a Lucas Saw mill 8" cutting depth & width.
I'm looking for advice on best way to mill maximum planks and beams with a view to making a large table for clients outside eating area. Anybody have design & plans for making a table around 18-20' long?
