Depending on the table saw fence you have
you may be able to make a tapered block on
the band saw 3” wide, double-stick tape your
work to it, make the first cut. Move the fence
to the other side of the blade and make the
second cut with the block flipped over. Your
fence should be parallel to the miter slot to
do this, not out of square by 1/32” like some
woodworkers who only use the fence to the
right of the blade set them up.

I would probably do it with a block and a fence
on a band saw but if your saw doesn’t cut
straight with a fence you might not want to
spend the time tuning it to do so.
