What do you use then? Jigsaw? You work is very detailed, I just assumed you used a scrollsaw.

It's a good idea, but I'm actually more comfortable holding my jigsaw in my hand. I've tried a real scroll saw and I found out I'm not as accurate with it than I am with my small jigsaw ... although I guess it's only a matter of habit, I'd need to get used of working with a scroll saw first. Then I'd probably prefer a scroll saw ...

What type of glue do you use to attach pieces together? And do you use a belt sander? by hand? Is the MDF heavy?
Sorry for 20 questions, love this tutorial and interested in making my own props.

I mainly use neoprene and wood glue. 
I've never used a belt sander, but I'd love to have one :) 
I use a cheap vibrating sander, my dremel with sanding tips, and I also sand by hand.
MDF weight about 700 kg/m3, so it's 7/10 the density of water ... not heavy, but not really light neither ...

This tutorial is a bit old, but the only other one I made more recently is all in french ...
Good luck for crafting your own props ^^
