but you might be able to if thats all you have, will just be a pain in the ass
On my very first pack I used a jigsaw to cut my mobo out of wood. It took a lot of Bondo to cover up the wood grain afterwards though (I used plywood).
Beware that if you do use MDF (which cuts and sands really well) you can't screw into it (they could tear out); you'll have to bolt onto it.
At least I have all year.
but I think I'm going to break down and get a jig saw as I can find one for $20-$30.

And yes you sure can cut it out by hand, the right saw and having the skills is all that is needed... Fine woodworking was started long before the advent of power tools... And you will find most cabinet makers and fine wood workers still use hand saws on a regular basis as you have more control in many cases... But yes electric tools make the job easier and faster in many cases...

As my post question states I'm wondering if any of you have had reasonable success cutting out a motherboard with a hand saw. I would just get a jig saw but I don't have a good work area, or need for a jig saw at this time. Any help is much appreciated. If you have done this before what wood do you recommend and what type of hand saw would work best for cutting curves? By the way MDF I usually buy here https://sheetmaterialswholesale.co.uk/Yes? cutting MDF is posible, but really hard. Good luck!
