Ryobi circular saw ?

Is a Ryobi circular saw ok? I've got a Ryobi saw that cuts trees, can't remember what it's called. I think it's called a reciprocal saw.

What amps should I get, etc?

I think I want a cordless. Do they come with charger and battery?

They've got some sub $50 or around $50 ones at HD.

I very rarely cut wood, but I'm going to use it to cut down my bathroom vanity to 21 inches from 22.

Cordless batteries don't fair well if left on the shelf/bench for long periods of time. So unless you have other cordless tools that take the same battery I would recommend getting a corded tool. Some come with a charger but not all. Don't remember if they all come with a battery.
Generally the more amps a tool has the stouter the motor.

Circular Saw

You will need a corded saw for your project, preferably a 15 amp model.

cut down my bathroom vanity to 21 inches from 22
Is this the height or width??

Cutting a vanity is not simple, they use a lot of glue and various joints and attempting to disassemble and reassemble is a fair amount of work.

I've only cut one base cabinet, down to a desk height, and used a big table saw, dont think I'd attempt with hand tools!

Depth. This is an old plywood custom built 'cheap', 'plain' style vanity. Nothing fancy by any means, but it's old and good and very solid. I've decided to keep it and just replace the vanity top. I need to get the depth to 21 inches so the new vanity top and sink will fit.

It may actually look ok on the 22 inch (depth) vanity, but I haven't tried it yet. I actually have to get the vanity top again. I had a granite one, but I got a little scared of the radon thing and brought it back. I'll most likely just get a solid top, not granite.
