I’d use a long straight edge or a chalk line to mark a “centre line” where it looks about right, and then use a square to mark square cut lines at both ends. Cut with a hand saw. When you test assemble the piece you can adjust the cut on the ends with a hand plane.

Ymmv depending upon what tools you have. Depending upon the length of the shelf you could also use a sliding table or cross cut jig to do the end cuts on the table saw, but you’d need a secure way of clamping the workpiece down.
