Flattening a warped platter

>I turned a 14" cherry platter the other day. It had been cut over the summer and Anchorsealed, so it wasn't "that wet", but it's still gone wavy on me...

Has anyone tried to make a flattening frame to remove wavies from a platter? Did it work or just bust the platter? It's still moving, and feels pretty flexible. I'd rather it was a platter than a potato chip...
