Sliding Carriage Panel Saw
It's the hassle-free way to cut plywood. And it has features that will save you time and money.
An easy way to break down sheets of plywood is on a panel saw. The trouble is, these saws can cost a thousand dollars or more, and most panel saws take up a lot of wall space. But this panel saw solves both of these problems. First of all, you'll save a lot of money by building the saw yourself. And second, once the sheet of plywood is in place, it never moves. Instead, a sliding carriage guides the circular saw so you can make both rip and crosscuts accurately.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
