[QUOTE=woodnthings;2069613]I'd use Poplar. It paints very well.
The diagram posted above shows a "right tilt saw"....
not common these days. With a left tilt saw, no need for a sacrificial fence. All cuts will be fine using the stock fence, just lay the piece flat on the table, not vertical.
Do you need 20 ft in a single length.... I doubt it. Lengths under 10 ft will be manageable with proper outfeed supports and a "qualified" helper. Shorter than 10 ft will be a lot easier.]
That's exactly the situation - two 4' lengths, one 7', plus extra for returns, miters, mistakes, etc.
My saw is in fact a left tilt, and I've been testing with it flat on the table. I have tentative approval from the CEO.
