Slabbing walnut

CJ in MPLS
I've got four, 5' long by 14" diameter walnut logs that need to be cut up into slabs/planks. I am at a bit of a loss as to how to do this as this is a bit larger than what is reasonable for pushing through a 17" band saw. Doable I think, but I'm asking for trouble. Some engineering is called for.

I've also got to put a finish on a lectern that I built to go on my credenza at work to give me a place to read patents while standing. I have a tendency walk about the building with printouts as I can only sit still for so long.
