Suggestions for straightening warped pieces on dresser?

This is a bit off-topic for this forum, so if someone knows of a more appropriate forum please let me know.
I have an old dresser to refinish and some of the horizontal pieces on the face of the dresser between the drawers are warped. The warped pieces are 3/4" x 1" and 24" long birch. The worst ones have bowed out and down about 3/8" in the center. The dresser sat in an unheated/uncooled building for probably 40 years, and I suspect that the heat and humidity swings caused the warping - there's no water damage on it. Does anyone know of a way to get these pieces bent back straight?
