Cut plywood with a circular saw

Circular saws can be intimidating if you have never used one before.  Here are some posts I wrote on my journey to learning to cut plywood with a circular saw (which was previously a tool that scared me).

    There is this iPhone/iPad app called “Smart Cutter” that runs an optimization algorithm to find the maximum number of small pieces cut from a larger sheet of paper with minimum scrap.

    Here is a video about it:

    There are a couple of more cut optimization apps specifically geared towards carpenters and woodworkers the are:

    Carpenter Pro: For multiple plywood stock sheets with wood grain control capability & kerf allowance:

    Carpenter Cut: For single plywood stock sheet with kerf allowance:

    Both work for iPhone & iPad.
