I want to cut out wooden letters from a 1/2inch to 1 inch thick peice of wood, what saw do I use?

Question by rebecca l: I want to cut out wooden letters from a 1/2inch to 1 inch thick peice of wood, what saw do I use?
I would like to cut out wooden letters for my daughter’s name to put on her wall instead of paying money for the precut ones. Would I be better off using a scroll saw or a jigsaw? I don’t have a workshop so I’m also trying to keep that in mind. I think I will be using wood that is between 1/2 inch and 1 inch in thickness. Thank you

Use a jig saw.
Pre drill your holes so the blade will fit into the wood and saw from there.
Good luck!
