Because circular saws are louder, smaller, less sturdy and less powerful. And by the time you build the saw top thick enough to not warp overtime, you lose the capacity for thicker cuts.

However, there are some cool designs, even one posted as a project this past week, that does what you are wanting to do. I just feel that the cheaper, better, and safer approach is a real table saw…Craigslist has some bargains…and if you can’t afford $50 to $100 for a used Craftsman 113, then I’m not sure you’ll ever afford to do this hobby.
