I am in a rut because I am trying to cut a viola bass shape out of wood, but all I have is a crappy sawsall (reciprocating saw). this wood is about 3 inches thick at the thickest points, and I can't seem to cut it too well with my sawsall. It is killing my hand to cut this shape, which shouldn't be that hard. What tools can and should I use for cutting wood?

Currently trying to find a band that can use me. ¿Y Tu?

Coping saw works...
Don't try it unless your heracules though.

Seriously, bandsaw, router, jig-saw
If you cannot buy a saw of any kind, get a spindle, and disk sander. Then very roughly cut with the reciprocating saw.
I don't reccomend it though.
