If I was at this stage, I would get a weed burner
Flip the table over and do the bottom first. Burn in full length strokes from side to side just as if you were spraying a finish overlapping with each stroke, then final spot burning where needed to even color. I wouldn’t worry about overheating the glue joints.
Afterwards check the top and see if the cupping changed or got worse.
I have no idea what the wood will do, but when you do the top it may balance out.

Disclaimer: I’ve never done this. It’s just an idea. As I like to say, just food for thought.
