I would roughly plane both faces and mark
them with a yellow or white pencil to indicate
which direction planing produced a smoother
surface. Chalk works too.

From there you can rip some rough edges and
clamp them up to see if they’re going to go
together flat enough to make one panel to
cut your parts from. If not, you may have
to remove some twist from one or more.
Of course the glue joints will come out nicer
if you hand plane them.
