is it possible to adjust the plans to new thicknesses? What about ripping these into narrower pieces (which will have less of a twist) fix each piece, and glue them back together – you’ll still lose some dimension, but might be less than trying to straighten the larger 2×1 3×1 pieces?

otherwise I think the only other option is to get new lumber, and use these for future projects….

All I can realistly think about is a replacement if you can’t make them any smaller.
