If only doing plywood and 4/4 hardwood, I would consider the Bosch 4100 with gravity rise stand. It folds up and easily stores out of the way. One of the best saws in the genre of compact & portable. But the fence only goes….27” for a cut? And not 100% accurate (maybe…98%). Be prepared to use a hand plane afterwards. Over 4/4 thick hardwood, you run the risk of saw blade bogging down depending on wood species.
Which brings up a follow-up question: would hand tooling (hand saws, planes, etc) be more at home in your small shop than machinery?
