The drawing shown by jayb looks like it shows a good idea.

I may not understand the direction of the bevel, but why the need to stand it up on an edge?

From reading the question post, my thought was to use the table saw but I would be laying the piece down flat.

I d also think I could make this type of cut with a corded, powerful circular saw after clamping a guide bar to the table top. But I repeat, maybe I have the wrong image of the cut edge.

You need to stand it on edge because of the angle. Most table saws can’t be angled to 75 degrees so you put it at 15 and stand it on edge.

I’m probably going to go with the sled type of jig but make one to straddle the fence for a little more support since running the 22” edge will put 36” in the air and then just take tiny passes.
