I have a beautiful piece of mahagony that I would like to make into a table top. The problem is that it is warped. Is there any way to straighten it out?

The answer is maybe, You need to give us much more information.
1 how big is it?
2 How Thick is it?
3 How much is it warped?
4 How was it stored?
5 Was it dried and straight before?
Wood moves with mosture, when one side has more than the other it warps or cups. You need to allow the wood to come to equrilibrium with its environment and hopfully it will go back to being straight. It is also possible to rip it into narrow stips and reglue to reform into a strait top. Lots of things depending on the answers to above.
