    What type of saw is used to cut out shapes of wood?

    I want to cut various shapes from wood, and not sure what type of saw or tools to use. Have an idea to make a wooden rider for kids, like a tricylcle. If you know how to work with wood, can you please provide information needed. Thanks.

    In the UK, we would use a fret or jigsaw.

    In the US, I believe one can use a jigsaw or a band saw.

    A scroll saw is the tool I would use.  Most scroll saws can accommodate very small blades for detailed work.  I used one to make jigsaw puzzles for my children  when they were young.

      Thanks neildabb, I haven't heard of a scroll saw before...may be good if it can do detailed work.
