    err use a electric saw and place a vacumn cleaner beside it to suck all the dust. works for me.

    anyway, everywhere have this kinda shops, depends where u are. if in the east, ubi & eunos have plenty as well. even AMK have, but those are not in ground level, so have to move the planks up, more tedious.

    Salute you if you can cut it easily.
    plus you will never get a perfectly straight line, even with electric jigsaw.

    workshop using workbench saw is best if avaliable la....

    1.7 m is length right.

    I suppose usual size is 1" x 8" for planks or 1" x 2" so cutting across 8" or 2" is not difficult.

    BTW I ever cut across a 4ft plywood and get a very straight line. Its the type of hand saw you use and a bit of skill.

    But since TS dont want to create a mess in GF house, its better to bring it to carpenter shop to cut.
