Throw this into the You Tube search bar.
circular saw cutting guide

Having a guide will help you in several ways. You can clamp it or attach it with screws or double sided tape to you work piece and make straight cuts (cross cut or rip). A short one about 24-36 inches long will be big help for smaller pieces of sheet goods (or crooked boards). A longer one would be great for ripping sheet goods or longer boards.

If your boards are warped (like a banana), you can use the guide to rip a straight side. That would be necessary for glue ups. Your hand plane would have to do the smoothing if needed.

Good luck. Feel free to check out my projects. I am retired and work in my one car garage. :-)
