Re: Warping

Reverse the process. Build a straight jig, with extra support around the warped point, force the wood into the jig, and steam it for a while. Repeat as necessary, the wood will partially relax back into the warp a few times.
I used that method to put a warp/sori into a homemade bokken, worked a treat. Didn't want to cut across any appreciable amount of grain.
