If they haven’t been planed on one side, chances are they aren’t straight and flat either. Sight down each long edge and see if you can detect any twist or warp. The sides need to be parallel to each other and at 90° to the flat face as well. If one face and one side are flat and straight, you may be able to fix everything on a table saw. Another problem could be that they are not a uniform thickness. That can be a little more challenging to fix without a planer.
