I want to cut out letters in wood, what kind of saw do I need?
I want to start cutting out shapes and letters from wood for craft projects, what is the best kind of saw for this? I know very little about saws. Also, what kind of wood would I need to buy? It needs to be smooth and paintable. Thanks!

I don’t know what kind of wood though. I think particle board would be fine, especially if you are just practicing with a saw fir the first time.

you probably want a fret saw or a coping saw. I’d say you can use just about any kind of wood; the smoothness depends on how fine you sand it.
edit: a c-clamp would help a lot in keeping the wood in place while you cut it. Or else, if you want a mechanical saw, I’d suggest a band saw. You’ll also need a drill if you plan to make Os, As, Ds, Qs, Rs, etc. (how else would you saw out the inside?

Well – if you want to do a good job, you’d probably need a band saw. They’re big stand saws – big heavy things – and they work quite well.

if its small letters go for surgical blades. it will serve you well
Can I use a 7″ table tile wetsaw to cut laminate wood floor?
Can I buy a laminate wood saw blade to replace the wetsaw blade and use it to cut laminate wood? Thanks!

Yes! Just not efficiently.

I don’t think so. Their motors run at different speeds and operate differently.
Suggestion by scooby
I guess if wood blade fits. I think a miter saw would be more convenient

yes you can and it should work just fine. just cut alittle slow the first couple of times to see if the saw can handle it. but it should if it cuts tile.
