I use my circular [skill] saw for this kind of work. Itís easier than trying to maneuver the plywood on the table saw, and can be just as accurate if you follow a few simple guidelines.
First, I use a straightedge guide [a fence made from a 1X4 48 or 96 inches long] clamped to the plywood. This way, all I have to do is ride the edge [foot plate] of the saw along the guide to get a straight cut. Second, as you can see in the photo below, [sorry I don't know how to post pics] I also place the plywood on a sheet of 2″-thick, rigid foam insulation. This supports the full sheet of plywood, and I donít have to worry about cutting into the floor or damaging the saw blade. And that piece of foam insulation can be used to cut many sheets of plywood."
