If you're going to get into craftwork, you got to have the right saw to cut the mustard. Now, in a case like this where you're cutting an intricate design like this, you could use a coping saw. But it would take you a lot of coping and maybe some cursing and maybe some sweat to get it done. There's a better way. This is a 'band saw'.
For cutting a variety of woods, plastics or even metals, the Bosch Jigsaw is the right tool to get the job done right.
The Bosch Jigsaw 1587AVS features a high efficiency motor with more power for the most demanding cut. The jigsaw features a dust blower to clear your cut line that shuts off for metal cutting.
It has a linear counter balance for accuracy and an adjustable footplate that tilts left and right up to 45°. The base retracts for flash cutting and the top handle gives you extra control under a heavy load.
