if you have access to multitexture, put the bitmap in there its much easier to randomise. Assuming you dont...

Make a multi-material

Make a VrayMtl & in Diffuse > Color Correction > Place your bitmap in this and crop to 1 board board

Copy the VrayMtl down into your next 5 (or however many) slots, and move the crop to the next board. This will give you a different board for each element. Make sure to adjust the color correction each time - shift the brightness/contrast, saturation (I dont recommend adjusting the hue - personal preference)

Apply the MaterialByElement modifier, if you made 10 different Sub-Materials in the Multi/Sub-Object material - select Random Distribution - 10 (I chose 5 for this example)

Apply UVWMap - Face mode

This is how it will appear if you did this correctly - I made it just plain color so you can see the randomisation

If you want to make it look 'real', you will copy the Diffuse slot into the Reflection or Gloss and adjust the Color Correction to Mono Output (Black/White/Grey), and adjust the brightness/contrast. This will crunch where the specular goes - generally with timber you will get more specular where the grain is and less throughout the flatter parts. This all depends on the type of wood as well or what look you are going for. The shader is more important after you get the randomisation correct. Same with the bump value
