Re: Embarrassed to ask

Welcome. Easiest way is to clamp a straight edge to the piece of ply and then run the base of your circular saw against the straight edge. A suitable straight edge could be something like a furniture panel / melamine shelf that you get from a diy shed. to get it square, buy a reasonably large carpen...

Re: Decent router bit's for kitchen worktop cutout

I've got a versofix cutter from Wealden Tools which is initially expensive but in the long term is probably more cost effective. I think it is recommended to use a new cutter for every couple of mitres.

£700 budget will get you a new festool plunge saw and probably a 1400 and 2700 track. Just make sure you buy a rip blade too if you are going to rip solid timber.

welcome to the forum. If, as it would appear, this is a piece of commercially bought furniture rather than bespoke, it will almost certainly have a sprayed lacquer finish which will be difficult to repair. You could try waxing it with something like briwax and seeing what it comes up like.

if the fence lifts the further across the table you pull it then take it out, put it in back to front and gently lift it to try to realign it. Some gently heat on the bracket may help.

Just to add that the cracking shown in your first picture is quite common due to the veneer shrinking, but the bubbling is clearly defective veneering where the glue has failed.
