Larry,

To add to what Rick said - if you're going to be making faux ship-lap panels out of plywood, and assuming that you will be ripping the 6" strips out of 4x8 sheets, I would recommend the UEG as one of your first purchases. With that and a support table of some kind, you will make short work of turning a sheet into 6" strips. I started with the EZ Smart Table but felt that it didn't give me enough support for ripping full sheets so I made one out of plywood strips that sits on top of two saw horses. This table can also be used with a hand-held router and edge guide to hold the strips while rabbeting the edges of the strips to make the ship-laps.
