how exactly do you go about getting the back of a stave flat to the point that it is good enough to mate with the bamboo backing?

It was easier with the horn because itís more flexible. That being said I think I can. I think I can. I think I can.  ;D

Say Arvin, why are you putting so much emphasis in having a flat single back ring to put the bamboo on? I understand the belly ring, but not the back?

The terminology folks are slipping.  A backed selfbow?   You can't say that!
