Wet out the covering layers and cover the layup with plastic wrap (epoxy won't stick to it).
The wood pieces press the flanges to make it nice and flat.

into a "U" shape for this step, but for a one-off, just a couple of pieces of wood worked fine.

Then put some weight on the wood parts to compress the flange a bit while it cures.
