Instead of a Circular Saw, Use a Handsaw

A circular saw can't be beat for ripping a sheet of plywood, but for those short crosscuts in which the only clamp in place is your knee, a good handsaw is safer, easier, and (when used properly) more accurate. Ditto for working on a ladder or a roof. Besides, this Wenzloff and Sons reproduction of a 1797 British handsaw is a pleasure to use, cutting as smoothly and gracefully as any we’ve seen.
