Question Wine Barrel Project

Hello, I am new to this woodworking forum site. But I have a project that is very intriguing. The staves of a barrel I want to engrave using an epillog laser engraver. But the wood is rounded. I have built a jig to try to engrave with it and it works alright so far. But I am wondering if it is possible to straighten such a piece out. Can anyone help me???

are you engraving along the length of the stave? or just in one area. does your jig hold the stave or rotate it? if you flatten it out it is just a board!?!

it would not be easy to flatten a stave. pretty sure it would require partially cutting into the board to weaken the fibers enough to bend. and being curved on two axis, that is times 2.

you may want to repost this into another forum/topic to get more responses. this is a cad software forum.
