       A scroll saw is the best tool for cutting the tokens to shape.  A band
saw would also do.  Any saw with a circular blade is a bad ( dangerous)
choice for small work.  For etching a design into the tokens I would suggest
a dremmel tool.   If the design permits I would reccomend putting the design
on the wood before cutting the tokens to size.  It should be easier to do on
the larger piece of wood.
       My band saw broke today,  I still have a scroll saw but you would have
to come way out here to use it.  With the band saw down I can't really do
without it.
