I think Crank49 has a good answer.

But it would help also to know how wide the finished layup has to be. If it’s no wider than 2 1/2” (what your TS could cut), use a taper jig to cut a taper from stock that wide, or as wide as you need. Re set the fence, and cut that tapered piece off. Continue until you have enough tapered pieces for your glue up.

Come to think of it, I made a tapered, gently S-shaped tiller for my sailboat many years ago, and used tapered laminations. But I don’t really remember how I cut them. Probably because my brain’s memory function is merciful.
