As David already eloquently pointed out, your board is cupping because of unequal moisture disipation in the wood. Store the wood opposite of how you got the cup in the first place. It should start moving in the opposite direction. When you store your wood in the future, try to position your wood so it receives even air flow. The stresses won’t release in a one sided manner that way. If you plane any wood, plane both sides. If you give both faces even treatment, you should encounter less cupping issues.
