This is only way I would make purple wood:

If C-channel is not stopping the cupping, then limited options exist to fix it. Likely have to rip boards into narrow widths, and attempt to balance the grain direction and stresses. The mix of flat sawn and rift sawn boards is not helping. It takes flat boards to make flat table top.

Best Luck.
