I have a 1-car garage from 1929 (www.radburn.org). Although there is no
car(let) in the garage, it's pretty full with canoes and bikes + assorted
gardening tools. I have barely enough room for a 4x8 sheet, and can't
easily crawle around it. Standing *is* easier!
I've used most of the methods everyone else has been talking about. For
the bathroom remodel this summer I built the sacrificial-top table
and lopped the good edges off a couple good plywood sheet, one long and
one short, for guides.
I plan to make a *real* circular saw guide this spring, but that table
doesn't need any work. It's GREAT. Click on "Setting up the table" about
halfway down the page to see what it looks like and an easy way to put a
heavy sheet of ply on it. Folds up nice for storage. Used it to cut the
sheet vinyl for the bathroom floor. Toss a sheet of ply on it for a top
and it makes a passable assembly/work table. Took me an afternoon and
about twenty five bucks to build it. I think it's saved me hours of time
and I know it's done wonders for my back. :-) It's a lot easier and more
fun to mark out and cut a good edge when the work is at a comfortable
height and you know it's not going to fall on your foot when it's cut.
Cutting plywood with a tablesaw is possible - if you've got about an acre
of infeed and outfeed tables and a six foot fence. Having somebody hold
the ends up while you try to guide it through a blade going a few
gazillion revs per minute might lose you some friends. At best you'll get
a lousy edge. They're just too awkward to handle.
