It splits into strips as I unroll it, it is very brittle.

I did think about soaking it, but it hadn't been mentioned - so I didn't. Apparently bricks can be very useful for holding if you don't have weights like these.

This is right up my alley! Do you soak the wood first, and then weight it, to flatten it out? I had to do this with some 100 year old veneer that had come off of a sewing machine cabinet. I, however, did not have weights, lol.

It is wood, extremely curly and brittle wood!

Well, despite what I see here - it looks very like wood to me!
