Cutting Plywood Without a Tablesaw

Jigs can turn an ordinary circular saw into an accurate cutting tool

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.
