    Will I have to buy tools?
    Yes and no. Ideally for this course and if you are serious about starting to DIY, you should own a miter saw, a drill, and a nail gun. These are what I call the necessity tools, but if you have a neighbor or a family member you can borrow them from what works as well. If you have a DIY Bestie, you can go in on tools together and lower the cost as well as purchase refurbished/lightly used tools from places such as eBay, Craigslist, and Facebook Marketplace. Specialty tools can also be rented from your local hardware store if you. Need it for just one project. My rule of thumb is when you go to start a new project include a portion of your budget to buy the one tool you’ll need for that project. No need to fill a workshop with tools that you may or may not use.
