    At the local Lowe's, they will cut the mdf you buy to your specs for a small fee if not for free depending on his mood. Maybe this is true for every Lowe's store.

    I use a circular saw, caulk gun, drill, clamps, screws, gorilla glue/liquid nails, silicone, wood dowels, and I would use a jigsaw but it's broken so I use a sabresaw...takes a little longer but it gets the job done. Routers are fun tools to use too.

    I used a table saw, drill press, 2 hp plunge router, jig saw, lots of clamps, portable drill, woodworker's bench with vices, electric screwdriver, framing square, combination square, an awl, and a really sharp pencil

    Didn't need my bandsaw, planer, jointer, or the other goodies in my shop...
