A table saw with a dado would work very well if you don't have a router. If you don't have access to one there is always the extremely inprecise method of using a a chisel which I have done before when I was too lazy to set up anything else.
The handheld circular saw would work but you better have a steady hand or at least a makeshift fence to guide off of. I have had too many bad experiences with those saws to recommend them unless you absolutly must.

"I told her about my conversation three years ago with the political leader of Islamic Jihad in Gaza. "What's the difference between suicide, which the Koran condemns, and martyrdom?" I asked. "Suicide," he replied, "is done out of despair. But remember: most of our martyrs today were very successful in their earthly lives." In short, there was a future to live for--and they detonated it anyway."
