You can try using battens to fasten to the underside in effort to pull them flat. What I might be inclined to do is to plane the bottom of the boards to see what lies underneath the rough surface. Ya never know, ya might like what ya see. I’m not sure what a pour on epoxy finish would look like but its an option to get a smooth surface without altering the look of the lumber.

If it were me, I would shoot for a “skip planed” finish. Kind of an in between of rough cut and finish planed.
