What kind of saw should I shop for?
I'd like to not have the guys at Lowes do most of my cutting anymore. This would be my first power saw (apart from an electric chainsaw I've used once or twice).
I want mainly to do some simple furniture building, bookshelves and the like. Maybe some angled cutting but not much. Not much heavier stock than a 2x4, not much bigger stock than 4x4 plywood.
Right now I have space and money for exactly one saw. I don't have a dedicated workshop and will have to put this thing away in my detached garage between jobs; I don't have space for a big workbench.
Table saw with stand? Compound miter? Good old fashioned circular? I'd like to have them all, but it's just not possible.
