With a large slab, and a free-form cut I would choose a jigsaw with a diamond or carbide tip blade, and then as Rick said clean the edge with a router.

Such blades are available for a scroll saw as well, but with a large slab it would be hard to guide it through the saw, IF it had a deep enough throat.
