At the cabinet shop I used to work at we would do something similar with solid wood panels that bowed after glue-up. We would just set them on the floor overnight. The cool concrete floor combined with the heat from the shop heaters above would straighten them right out. You had to be careful, cause if you left them out too long they would cup/bow the other way. I don’t really understand the science of it, but I do know it can work, hope that helps, Cheers!
