I'm a complete novice to woodworking - I have a few plans in mind (tables and such like) that involve gluing boards to make tops, sides and so forth.
My idea is to glue boards to make panels larger than I actually need them to be and then shape them to size afterwards... but I don't have a table saw, nor anywhere to put one should I buy one (without commandeering the dining room).
So my question is - what's the best combination of hand (power) tools to achieve this? I have a plunge router, so I was thinking of grabbing a circular saw, using that to trim the panels to roughly the right size and then using the router with a fence to square everything off.
What other options do I have?
