Wow, I never knew I could make a cut so straight!
So, I'm fairly new to fine woodworking. I've cut a fair share of 2x4s and stuff...but nothing that really needs too much precision.
I'm building a DVD shelf and unfortunately I don't have a table saw. So ripping/cross cutting with the circular saw. I made a little workbench out of particle board and I used my brand new Hitachi M12VC to flish route it. Wow...so straight and smooth haha.
I also cut some dados today...freakin awesome. I was going to do stopped dados, but I figured my first project I just want to get it done, so I went all the way through. I think it will look nice with the dados showing anyway. I still will be doing stopped dados on the top and bottom boards that the sides will sit in...but that's another day.
My only other 'cuts I have to do is I need to trim the shelves 1/4". I will be putting a 1/4" rabbet on the back for a sheet of plywood. So I need to shorten the depth of the shelves by 1/4" ( used 1x8s for everything, 1x10s for the top and bottom). So we'll see how well I cut those. I suppose cutting off 1/4" off of a 40" board is too much for a router? I should probably just use the circ saw for that right?
