  • We got some offcuts from our wooden (don't care) worktops and I've promised to make them into shelves.

    It seems now that I've dragged my feet for long enough that I might be allowed to buy a power tool to help me.

    Should I buy a circular saw, which I'm guessing would be necessary for cuts along the lengths of the pieces, or a compound mitre saw?

    I think I'd feel more confident using the latter, but a circular saw might actually be more what I need for this.

  • For long cuts, I would get a track/plunge saw. Can also be used for cutting to length if you're careful about the set up. You won't be able to rip cut with a mitre saw, but you can cross cut with a track saw.
