Ridge-pole patching

Okay. Not a single community I'm posting this in is appropriate, but there doesn't seem to be an appropriate place to ask this.

I'm constructing a small building (10'x14', with a 4 foot overhang on one side and a one foot overhang on the other). The ridgepole to which I'm nailing my rafters will be made out of two 2"x6"x10' boards, and I'm wondering what an appropriate length of board to use to patch these together is.

Any help would be apprectiated, sorry if this is disgustingly off-topic to your community.

shamefully cross posted to:
architecture, homo_depot, dwellings, infinityproject
none of which is directly related to my question.

Thank you.
