Box Knife ( I prefer a folding version) You can use a X-acto knife too but you will go through a lot of blades. Or just use both.)
At least 10 Spare blades
Contact cement or rubber cement ( I suggest Elmer's Rubber cement. it seems to have less fumes.)
Hot Glue Gun
At least 10 extra sticks of glue
Accurate Ruler (seriously this is mandatory. A lot of rulers are printed wrong. Check it out with a good tape measure. Nothing worse than measuring out an inch with one device only to find out later it was really 13/16 of an inch.)

Small sanding Barrel (medium grit)
Medium Sanding Barrel (medium Grit)
