Question Cabinet Building HELP!!!

Hello Everyone. It has been a long time since I had wood shop in HS. I am building a Birch Plywood pantry closet for our kitchen. When complete I will stain it to match the cabinets we have already stripped and refinished. That is all the easy stuff. My confussion stems around table saw and circular saw cuts since I will be using both to build this cabinet. I know that the blades go opposite directions of each other when cutting.....but I cannot remember which one you cut with the good side down and which one you cut with the good side up.

Please someone shed some light on this subject as the work weekend is near. I already have the finish blades just need to know which way to work the wood and yes the lines to be cut will be taped and scored first.

Thanks for all the help.

Regards,

Doug:

table saw - finish side up

skil saw - finish side down

Using tape on the back side will help to minimize tear out
