Thanks everyone for the input –
Jeremy – I think I like the idea of cutting the panels in half first and then try to use the fence in order to make more accurate cuts. I agree with your assessment of picking one cutting method and sticking to it rather than switching halfway. Steve from woodwrorkingformeremortals told me that he used the crosscut sled first then finished with the fence as the cuts became progressively awkward, but he said next time he would make the panel longer and only use the sled. He also said in his video that his cuts had not been as accurate as they could have been, so probably switching between the sled and his fence added some error.

Cheers everyone,
