Thanks to all of you for your comments. The results were successful. Here’s what I ended up doing. I soaked the concave side of the wood (logic being that it needed to stretch), then I put it in a large vise and began to give 1/2 turns at a time keeping the concave side wet. Once I got it flat, I let it dry for a couple of days in the vice. Perfect.

Thanks a million for helping out and thanks to Lumberjocks for being available.
