Depending on what your building and the strength needed you could also use a
1/4 inch hardwood plywood available at most of your woodshop stores most
common is a red oak variety.

And I agree with Robert you probably would want to use a scroll or band saw.

       I think that working something that small with a Jig-saw would be  a
bit dangerous.  I would suggest a scroll saw or band saw.   I would think
that any hardwood would do.  I choose bases on the appearance of the wood.
