    Re: tools for box building

    Circular saw
    Jigsaw
    Clamps
    Tape measure
    Framing square (not that important)
    Cordless drill
    Caulking gun

    Probably missing a couple things I'm sure.

    Be sure to go slow and be careful, or risk breaking bits.

    Re: tools for box building

    so which would be best for making the circles? Jigsaw, dremel, rotozip, or router?

    I'd personally say router ... follow by jigsaw.

    Re: tools for box building

    I believe all of them have circle-cutting accessories you can buy at Home Depot or what have you..........and what dremel are you talking about specifically, because they make a wide range of tools.........also, for the router, make sure the depth of the router/bit is larger than the width of the board you're cutting....
