I had a similar problem with some panels I glued up for a TV cabinet. Every single glued panel bowed on me. I spent close to a month trying to straighten them out. I’d wet one side and put a bunch of weight on the other. The next they’d be straight, left them for a couple of days to make sure they were straight. I set that piece aside and did one of the other panels. By the time it was straightened out the first had bowed again. Like I said after 3-4 weeks of this I gave and built in out of oak plywood.

I hope you get it working to your satisfaction. Honest, I know the frustration your feeling.
