The key to straight doors will be stock selection. Rather than 1×8s, look for 1×12 with the pith in the center, the ends will be quartersawn. Sticker and give the wood some time to acclimate/dry. Rip out the center (pith) and use the ends. Don’t back it with plywood or anything else, that will just cause problems.

Your rip and flip plan is worth trying.
