Default How to cut this?

Hello fellow woodworkers, it's been some time.

Going back to my wood affairs, I have a doubt about how to cut this without needing a scroll-saw or a band-saw, I've attached the image showing it.

The dimensions: the big square is 20"x20" aproximately.

What tools do you have and how perfect does it need to be? You could do it with just a jig saw, circular saw and finish with jigsaw, many different ways to do it depending on what you have to work with.

what is it you are wanting to cut???
the square, the notch or both???

the notch... Bosch jigsaw...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

The notch.

Jigsaw, the material is hardboard, I will get one and practice a bit, I don't have one of those either.

a $3 coping saw will work as well, and then use a file to square the corner.

Pablo if you are going to do a bunch of these I would be tempted to stack a buch of the squares together and then clamp them and do all of them at once. I would use the skillsaw to cut kerfs almost to the finished width and depth and about every 1 to 1.5cm apart in between and router with a straight bit to the finished size.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

I'm with Stick on the Bosch Jigsaw. Cheaper jigsaws are OK for the homeowner who will use it 3 times in his life, or if you simply can't afford the outlay right now. But if you can swing it, invest in the best.

You'd think that jigsaws have such a simple job - move a blade back and forth - that they'd be all the same. Not so. A good jigsaw is a joy to use, and will delay the time when you find it necessary to invest in a scroll saw or band saw. A poor one - well, it cuts wood.

“We should be careful to get out of an experience only the wisdom that is in it and stop there lest we be like the cat that sits down on a hot stove lid. She will never sit down on a hot stove lid again and that is well but also she will never sit down on a cold one anymore.” - Mark Twain
