If you have a bevel on the frame from the rip cut on the table saw that might explain the burning. Maybe you didn t get a clean feed thru the saw.

The burned faces shown in the pic above are from that 13 degree bevel cut. That said, I have even gotten burning cutting a 45 degree corner with the miter gauge. I may just be feeding way too slowly. I’m trying not to lose any fingers during my first week of this hobby, but perhaps I’m just being too slow in my approach. On those long rips the saw definitely audibly bogged down a bit so I took that to mean I needed to back off on the feed. But is that wrong? Is it ok to keep pushing and let the saw slow a bit or should you always try to keep the blade going at full speed?
