I’d still argue that for cutting up to 8/4 stock a hybrid type saw in the 500 buck range is fully serviceable. I only upgraded my portable saw when my projects got bigger and heavier, and I needed a Dado stack.

3hp cabinet saw us much nicer, but overkill for a guy starting out and on a budget. Just my opinion.
