Ripping by hand is more of an endurance and finesse thing than a brute strength opperation. I have never tried it with a Ryoba but I see no reason why that can’t be done.

For me a good 5 tipi (4.5 in my case) panel saw and a sawbench is my best friend. A european frame saw works well too if you have the ability to clamp the peice to your workbench without the clamps interfereing with your saw.

Just give yourself som extra room to clean up your cut with a handplane at fist and you should be just find for your project.
