If you’ve got a decent coping saw, I’d just get a few pull saws. I have three, a flush-cut pull-saw (super flexible blade), one that’s a two-sided, rip on one side, fine cut on the other, the other’s a Bakuma 300.

The Bakuma will rip a sheet of plywood (we used them in our Bodega Bay Boat Building competition entry), and then let me do fine notch cutting in maple. Most of my shop is power tools, but it’s fast and accurate enough that sometimes I’ll just do a cut by hand that rather than set up the saw.
