you would be happier in the long run if you spend money on good tools.

This. If you go the cheap route, you will use the tools a few times and they will most likely fail quickly. Buying solid tools is an investment and if you buy quality stuff it will last for years and always be there when you need them.

I was in a bind and needed a jigsaw so I went to Freds dollar store and bought one for $20 bucks. It got the job done. But I dont expect it to last... You could check your local dollar stores and such. But like I said, it may get you through this project, but quality tools are a good investment.

You dont need to waste money on saw horses either, i usually just use the table setup in my shed or just cut on top of an old sub box laying on the floor.

dont have anythign like that. i live in a aparment we have a small porch that we used to have a table and chairs but it was thrown away a few years back. i would do my cuts out side then do the rest in side. i wana build the hole thing then do the sub cut out. so what eles can i use to rest the wood on . i need ideas

you could use 5 gallon buckets, theyre a little cheaper than saw horses

yeah good call with the buckets, I live in an apt as well. I just threw 4 clamps on the railing outside and it held the mdf fine. Definitely going to be cheaper to hit up CL or maybe garage sales.

For straight cuts with the circular saw your going to need a straight piece of wood for a guide and clamp it on either end, and always make sure that there is support under what you're cutting otherwise your saw could kick back and or ruin your cut.

I cant believe no one has mentioned the pawn shop. Our local pawn shops have jigsaws, circular saws, and drills coming out their *** for cheap. like 15-30 bucks apiece
