I am a part time business owner, and I use 1/2" and 1/4" birch and maple veneer plywood all the time. I rip all 4'x8' sheets longways and make some crosscuts on the ends. Exact 90 degree straight cuts are critical to me. Working by myself it is difficult to rip tthis on my tablesaw by myself.What I am looking to do is make a horizontal cutting table much like a cnc machine. What I mean by this is having an "x" axis that travels 8' down the table, and a "y" axis that travels across the table. The cutter could be either a router or a circular saw mounted on a platform.
I also drill quite a few holes, so I would like to consider adding a drillto this as well. I know it sounds like I need a computerized machine but I don't have the money for it . I am open to comments and suggestins that you may have.
