not a bad question. I cut out the main, large peice with a bandsaw. Most of the smaller peices ive used a scroll saw on, and to get into the inside closed sections without cutting through i drill a hole to put the scrollsaw blade through. the triangles i cut out with a razor knife. for finishing i use an orbital sander, random bits of sandpaper, and one of my favorites, a random stick with sandpaper glued to it.I would love to learn how to do crafts with wood...This might be a dumb question but what tools are you using on this project?
