Default Ripping Ash Skirting - How?

Hi all,
I have 5 x 2.4 metre lengths of 60 mm Ash skirting that I must rip into either 2 lengths @ 30 mm or, preferably 3 lengths @ 20 mm.

Now I don't have a workable table saw.
I have hand saws or a circular saw with a good blade.
If get them ripped I can finish them off with a router.

Has anyone any ideas how I'm going achieve this task?

Thanks
Titus.

I would use the circular saw. You will loose some width with with every cut (width of saw blade).

Have a nice & safe day!

I'd take it to a buddy with a table saw or use your circ saw with a good straight edge.

I hand sawed one last night and it wasn't as hard as I thought.
I've only got another 12,5 metres of sawing to go.
So I'm thinking about a guide jig for the circ saw.

Success!

From these:


To these:


With this:

Which is my circular saw mounted on a plate with a tunnel guide for the skirting.
I ripped the skirting in to two 30 mm wide strips which I found to be aesthetically too wide.
So I moved the tunnel guides closer together and ripped them down to 18 mm.
