Here’s how we did it in the field for sheet goods. A pair of sawhorses (the cheap metal kind) with two 2×4’s lain flat on top of the sawhorses and the sheet goods on all.

Plywood / panelling:
Good face down and a 4’ level as a saw guide – normally true to +-1/8” with any reasonable circ saw.

Use your finger as a guide on your wooden rule with your utility knife, good side up. Slide to edge and snap, reach under & slit crease to separate pieces. Typ +-1/2” which is good enough for most rock jobs.

No fancy rigs, no dedicated stations, just the same field panel cutter as ever.
