Need Mitered Rip Cut- Have no Table Saw

I need a beveled edge on a single 32" long 2 x 4 for installing an air conditioner in a vinyl window... and I don't own a table saw.

My local Home Depot won't do rip cuts nor will my local mom and pop lumber place.

I'm pretty sure Home Depot doesn't rent table saws, but, even if they did, I can't really justify spending that kind of money for a single cut.

It's, as far as I can tell, the most ideal scenario for installing the AC (I need about a 6 degree slant on the wood so the water drains properly, and, no, I'm not going with shims) so I'm willing to shell out some money for the cut, just not tool rental money.

Any ideas?

If you have a circular saw, you can use a guide on one side and perhaps a support on the other and get a very good cut. There are many here that can detail that cut if you have the saw.

The other option would be a six pack (my choice) and locate a house under construction. That's a 1 minute cut if they have the saw all set up.
