The 60T Hi-ATB Infinity 010-060 is a terrific blade and should be ideal for your situation (one of my favorites).....very similar to the Forrest WWI. It’s got a reasonably high tooth count (60T) and a Hi-ATB grind for very low tear out in crosscuts and ply cuts, plus it’s got a slightly positive hook angle to help it rip reasonably efficiently in hardwoods up to ~ 5/4”. (It’s ~ $70) The only way to do better in plywood is to get an 80T Hi-ATB blade, but you’ll need a different blade for ripping in that case.

If you think your cuts will be more hardwoods than ply, something like the Infinity Super General of Freud Fusion 40T would be a good all around choice. It wouldn’t be a bad idea to pick up a 24T FTG TK rip blade if you plan to rip thicker materials.
