Sorry if this isn't -quite- papercraft related. Figured it's still close enough to ask here.
Anyways, I have a steady supply of cardboard where I work, and I've been thinking of using it to make furniture (light load shelving, side-tables, etc, nothing too crazy) by gluing it together with alternating grain direction using white glue. I figured with enough layers (3, maybe 4) it should be more like thick particle board and easy enough to use for construction.
My question though is this: what can I use to cut the glued pieces? Is there a sort of saw I could use that wouldn't tear it to shreds, or be too thick? A hand tool would be preferable, I don't really have space for, like, a table saw.

This refers to general /diy/ projects of miscellaneous materials but I figure you guys are the experts on the subject. How can I improve at cutting out polygons? I try and try but it always goes the same:
1) print out polygon template and tape it to whatever material, or use as is if working with paper
2) carefully cut it out with appropriate tool for the material
3) oh, it's a little wonky, lets shave off that other side 1/4 of a mm
4) oh, now it's wonky the other way, lets shave that other side off a tiny bit
5) goto 3 until there's nothing left to cut
Please show me how it's done!
