Because we were both working at the same time we snagged my dad’s circular saw and turned it into a utility table saw. And from below you can see it’s just a few scrap pieces of wood screwed down to hold the circular saw in place.
I wanted to show you those two circular saw setups to remind you that even though having a nice shop full of tools will, in most cases, allow you to get the job done easier and quicker it’s not 100% necessary to do most woodworking. I say “my sawhorses” but my dad actually built these from my sawhorse project a few years ago. With the plywood on the sawhorses the first thing to do is rip a small piece off of the long direction.
With the first strip clamped down and ready to be used as a reference fence for the circular saw I noticed there was quite a bit of flex as I pushed on it in the middle of the panel.
Then with the saw tracking against the factory edge of the first strip I cut the 9” wide base strip. The first strip with the factory edge will be glued and nailed to the wider base strip but the factory edge needs to be just a little further from one edge of the base strip than the distance from the blade of the circular saw to the furthest edge of the saw base plate. After adding glue to the smaller strip it is nailed to the base strip making sure it is on the reference lines from the previous step. We now know that the outside edge of the base strip is exactly where the circular saw will cut when slid across this track. Hi Jay, I like this video showing how to make the saw guide and other jigs on the work site. The most important points to remember is to keep the fence parallel to the saw while ripping and to use push sticks on anything less than 100 mm (4 inch) wide.


One of the nice things about this sort of shop jig is that you can use the opposite side of the jig for your router. The item may be missing its original packaging, or the original packaging has been opened or is no longer sealed.
By clicking Confirm bid you commit to buy this item from the seller if you are the winning bidder. Import charges previously quoted are subject to change if you increase you maximum bid amount. But it’s only half of the circular saw guide and we still need a base for the saw to ride on. To stop this flex I clamped a scrap piece of wood in the center of the plywood pushing against the opposite side of the first strip. Once the smaller strip is secured and the glue has had time to cure a cut is made with the circular saw referencing against the factory edge of the smaller strip. To use it simply line up the edge of the track with reference marks on your material, clamp it down, and cut a perfect line every time. People have been doing this for years and years and pinpointing the origin of the track is probably impossible. As both you and Matthias say this is not a setup for a first time woodworker to use without guidance from someone who is much more experienced using saws like this.
If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable. Just going out and purchasing a full set of woodworking power tools doesn’t sound like the smartest thing to do considering the goal of his tiny house is to live frugal, within means, and a debt free life.
Even though we had a circular saw table saw and a new benchtop table saw neither of those are really setup to easily cut down larger sheet goods accurately. I have five of them that are a few years old now and they are holding up great even living outside my shop. I used the factory edge as a guide clamped to the rest of the plywood to cut off another strip.


This establishes a zero clearance line for where the circular saw will cut every time you use the track. Remember that the circular saw blade itself will remove a little bit of material as well so it’s best to place the track on top of the material you are cutting to length and not the offcut of your material. I’ve already got a track of my own so I never thought I would be making a video like this but due to the circumstances of being out of town and actually knowing someone who needed one it seemed like a good project to share with everyone else.
A couple years ago I gave him one of my old circular saws so we made as much use out of it as we could. For that I made my brother a few circular saw guide tracks for absolutely straight cuts on larger sheet goods. As I just said, this measurement will probably be different on different saws as there is no standard here.

Last week I was visiting family in Michigan which would usually mean relaxation and a break from the daily life. Feel free to browse around and hopefully find something that will be useful to you and sign up for my email newsletter so you don’t miss any new content. Admittedly, not one of the fanciest jigs but it was great at crosscutting smaller strips and was essentially free to make. I can’t stand sitting idle anymore and the fact that my brother just started his Tiny House build meant I had plenty of opportunity to help out and make some sawdust. We did end up getting a super cheap benchtop table saw when we needed to resaw a lot of flooring though.
