I searched the forum but didn't find anything definitive.
I would like to. I have no woodworking experience. I do sew, so I have some experience with measure twice, cut once. But I've never done anything beyond a little basic sanding and crooked hand sawing. I'd love to get DD the large 12 piece stacking rainbow like the one sold here: http://thewoodenwagon.com/woodentoy/202/BSH1067.html
But I can't justify spending that kind of money right now. So then I thought... maybe I could make it. A friend of mine has a band saw. Would that be the right kind of saw? I'm kind of terrified of saws and I know nothing about where to get the supplies. Where would I go to buy the wood? I sometimes visit a tool thrift shop and they sell all types of saws. Would a jigsaw work? I found some tutorials on how to cut an arch online (here http://www.ehow.com/video_4420245_cut-arc-jig-saw.html and here http://www.diynetwork.com/how-to/how-to-cut-circles-and-curves-with-a-router/index.html). Is it really that simple?
