Table Top Unlevel

So, I have made a coffee table, but the top is a little uneven on one board. I used 5 2x6's held together by pocket holes/screws. One of the boards was slightly curved and it sticks up 1/8'' on one end for about 2 ft in or so. Can I sand this down level with 60 grit paper and a random orbital sander, or would a handheld planer work? I'm not sure how to fix this before I start sanding the project. I appreciate your time!! there is also 1x12 on the bottom shelf that was slightly warped and sticks up about 1/16th of an inch... would I send this down?

1/8 inch is a lot to sand, if you have a hand plane or power planer I'd use that to get it close, and then sand it smooth and flat with the rest of the table. When sanding, start with coarse grit and move up through finer grits.
