It really doesn't matter what method you use as long as it works well for yourself, if you have found a method that suits you well then good for you, the fact that you have shared your method on the forum is also great, it's what the forum is all about. Your method is unlikely to suit everyone but it may be great for some & something they hadn't thought to try themselves.
I don't have one particular method personally, it really depends what I am doing at the time & what equipment is set up
That may involve hand tools or power tools, I sometimes use hand saws for all sorts of cutting, 2 reasons for this, one it helps keep my hand in & secondly depending on what your doing it is often quicker than setting up & using a power saw
Your strip method would probably work with a hand saw but you can also use other methods depending on the type of saw, a trim saw only has teeth set on one side & using cardboard/vinyl or some other barrier should prevent scaring.
Like you I only have a small bandsaw, think 6" is my maximum cut so that only gets used for small stuff.
