Baby crib - Should I: Steam wood, soak wood, or boil wood to remove bow? Mesquite

Hello, Large scale need to remove bow from wood. What is an alternative option to flatten dimensional lumber if bowed? 85% of the bows are in the middle of the board. Steam wood, soak wood, or boil wood to form flat? I don’t have enough to plane So far I have created dimensional lumber from 2 large mesquite slabs and now I need to fix a bow in just about every board (50 pcs.) wood dims: L x W x H all in inches Biggest pieces: (4) 52×2.5×1.5 Smallest pieces: (26) 28×2.5 x .75 Right now my plan is to boil the wood and then clamp 3 or 4 pieces between two pieces of 3” square tubing. Baby crib pictures: Thank you all in advance...
