Do you have any C clamps? If it were me I'd clamp
a straight edge (ideally a piece of factory cut birch ply)
to the wood for cutting, then cut it over a box, barrel,
or some such. Cut one end while supported, then switch
the support to finish the cut.
Caveats: The offset of the blade is probably about 1 1/2",
so there's a limit to how thin a board can be with this
method. Also, be sure to put some little shims under the
C clamp tips. Otherwise you'll make circular dents in the
