A plainer does not make things flat. It makes the 2 sides parallel. No matter how many times you run it through it will still have the same warp. In fact it may get worse.

Mark the high area and remove it with a hand-plane.

If you have a joiner, set it to take off about 1/32. Sprinkle sawdust on the table and nest the board into the dust so that it feels solid. the dust is your shim. it will support the low areas and you can get a true cut without taking much off. (yes, I have a 12 inch joiner, but don’t be jealous of me My friend Rick has one that’s 24 inches wide)

-- nice recovery, They should pay extra for that mistake, Eric E.
