    A coping saw is what I use. <br><br>I don't have power tools. <br><br>It works fine. <br><br>Just go slow and verify always that you hold it straight.

    Sure, a coping saw works fine. Tobias is using one even for his naturals, sawed out of massive forks.

    I cut the rough shape for mine today and i use a scrollsaw, which uses the same blades as coping saws, and it works like a charm, and actually i think a coping saw is a pretty good tool for that, right after a bandsaw, and scrollsaw. <br><br>My name is Tobias too btw. There are to many of us. xD
