comment How much weight will a 4“x8”x20ft oak beam support?
A 4"x8"x20' oak beam is worth thousands of dollars. There's nothing comparable on Woodworker's Source, but the equivalent volume in 2"x2" blanks comes out to $1120. Sell the lumber and buy some I beams ($260 for a 6"x6"x20')!

You're going to have problems cutting kerfs with a miter saw. A table saw, radial arm saw, or circular saw would work though.
