The circular saw although introduced in the mid 1850s could not be made big enough and powerful enough to cut lumber of the size used in furniture construction until 1880.
Planing machines were experimented with early in the 1800s.
Two early experiments are the Woodworth planer in 1824 and the Daniels planer in 1834.
The circular saw was limited to cutting thin pieces of wood such as shingles, clapboards, and laths until the early 1900s.
Cupboards and other furniture in which the large size boards used in their construction are circular saw cut can date to 1880, but usually date after 1900.
