Cutting plywood on the tablesaw can be difficult because you have to move the unwieldy 4x8 sheet across the blade. A better solution is to move a circular saw over the sheet. For rips, the saw table rides next to a guide strip and for crosscuts, a fence squares the jig to the work. Watch as Gary Katz, Reseda, California, carpenter and writer, demonstrates the use of these two easy- to-make jigs.
Use the jigs to build the project described in Gary's article, A Bookcase That Breaks the Rules.
