I wouldn’t want to have to cut one side with the circ saw and flip it over to finish the cut – not unless I ran the saw on a zero clearance guide and had it cramped down. The point about turning down the speed is to prevent the maple burning, though if you have a clean sharp blade and go at it 3/4” at a time, you should be ok. If you do cut from both sides and need to level one bit, you could use a long, bottom bearing guided, flush router bit to straighten it.

I personally wouldn’t attempt cleaning that up with a block plane, I know the hand plane purists will say I’m a wussie, but it’s two big ends, and awkward because you won’t get it standing up to go at it, and maple is tough.
