Really, the simplest and easiest way to work with plywood is
to just have the nice person at the Home Despot cut it for you
on the panel saw. They're supposed to charge you for extra
cuts, but if you go on a non-busy weeknight they usually don't.

I have plenty of tools at home, but I need plywood cut into
quarters before it will fit in my car, so I do this often.
