Depending upon how big the bow is I would probably cut my losses and start over. You’ve basically made a spring that will be a continual nuisance if you try to force it straight. If you want to salvage the material, you may be able to cut it in half perpendicular to the bow for use in future projects where the a lesser bow is not a problem.

Personally, I would not glue the 2 piece together. I would simply drive screws from the underside and make sure they are well supported by the base once installed, though 2’x4’ won’t need much support.
