Nice Ible. What kind of saw are you using in the photographs?

It's a Stanley 20-800 (Clamping Mitre Box)

Does this work well with a circular saw?

No, I think this would only work well for a hand saw. You might be able to use a circular saw by clamping down a thick/straight edge that you can use as a guide.
