warped parquet table tiles

hi, I'm still hoping someone has an answer for warped parkay tiles on a table top.

I have removed the warped tiles, they are 1/8" thick solid oak, only one side was finished the other side was glued to table top. How can I unwarp them so I can reglue and refinish table.
Hellllllllllllllllllllllp!!

Linda, about the only way you will have any success at flattening out these pieces is to lay them on an absorbent surface, lightly spray them with water and sandwich them between clamps and wood until they have dried out. Even then, you may not have the product you expected. Oak will absorb water and turn slightly black if not finished right away. If the entire table top is affected, you could always purchase new oak parquet and redo the surface.
