To start, thanks to all who have, thus far, provided input towards helping solve the problem I am having with this warped blanket chest lid. I think that I have come up with a solution that will flatten the lid. Not only will it flatten the lid it will also add an attractive element to the blanket chest. Here is what I came up with.
Solution utilizes two side rails and a back rail all made of solid Red Oak.
Once I attach the soild wood rail along the back of the lid the bow that now exists should disappear or be minimized greatly. I think this will work. What do you think?
