Cant cut

Yes you can. Cut that thing down to 6"( a 4 and a 6 inch) flip it all 90 degrees and cut away at 2" increments.

If it is exactly 10" a full 2" will result much waste/loss due to kerf.  If the 2" would allow a slight tolerance for kerf, then your yield will be considerably more with no waste.

Draw it out on a 10" square and determine your cuts based on whether you want a majority of 4's or 6's.
