I made my sled longer and use 1/2” blocks screwed to the sled to lock the piece being planed in place. Of course don’t let your screws go through the bottom of the planer sled. I ripped mine out of a piece of a full sheet of plywood since I had some 8’ cherry boards that I needed to work on. If you need a longer sled then you can just join another piece of plywood to it as well.
