That makes me wonder if the joints might have gaps. It would seem to me that using straps like that for glue up that caused a bow would mean that the joints opened slightly on one side. The wood itself is unlikely to bow if you have an uncured glue joint. My concern is that forcing it straight may eventually cause the joints to fail. Personally, I think that I would have cut it apart and reglued it.
