DoomWord (that's not a typo for Doomworld); or you can use some image editing program and build it yourself from the letters found in Doom.

You can also export the DBIGFONT from zdoom.pk3 into a PNG and use that to get all the letters in a single convenient package.

My preferred tool is Bitmap Font Writer, the author's site died a couple of years ago but it's still available for download from the Internet Archive. There's also a set of Doom fonts you can download from here - unzip them into "Program Files\Bitmap Font Writer\fonts", select the font you want to use, set the image spacing (in Settings) to -1 to recreate the slight overlap of the original fonts and you'll be ready to go.
