I have for longer pieces just tilted and moved in. Make sure to tilt so
that the turning of the bit forces the wood to the fence, make sure the
wood is against the fence.
Or I use a plunge router setup with a fence attached to the workpiece...
Good suggestions, all, and thank you. I'm going to try my upcut idea using the router lift. I'm going to build an adjustable clamping device to hold the work along with vertical feather boards. Pix to come.

Fixture it, for the project's sake as well as your own. At very least,
glue it to a larger, easier to handle board.
