It’s easier if you have a sled (with a straight side) that holds the wood and rides against the fence. If you’ve got some plywood or MDF, that works. Ideally the sled would have some hold downs to keep the boards tight on the fence.

The board would overhang the edge of the fence slightly, and that’s what gets trimmed by the table saw blade as you push the sled. Then you can flip the board and run it through without the sled, ensuring the sides are parallel. Use even pressure and speed.

It’s likely you’ll still need to clean up the cut edge though, especially if you’re edge gluing the boards.
