I’ve used Dallas’s suggestion for steaming on some 13” x 14” 3/4 cherry (2 1×8 glue-ups that had been sitting for a few years) that had cupped. Bought a cheap steam iron (this process will ruin the base plate), soaked an old towel with water, covered the wood and “ironed” it on highest temp. The wood actually cupped in the opposite direction after about 5 minutes of ironing. Then clampled the pieces (4) together, with stickers between them, on the end of workbench for about a week. I used them the day they were unclamped in case the cupping returned. Have never tried it on a warped board.
