Agree on the fact that smoothing it would lead to it losing the character…then what’s the point? At most I’d use sanding mops to get it “smooth” while leaving the character. Also it appears the picture you’re trying to replicate was perhaps a wine barrel stave given its burgundy color. You could certainly mess around with some water-based dyes (e.g. TransTint) to get that look.

If you were really looking to smooth it out I’d use a draw knife followed by sanding or a round-bottom spokeshave. The latter is not only harder to use, but also something that won’t get much use for the majority of people.
