Frequently Used Supplies
This is by no means a comprehensive list of all the tools and supplies I use. There are also some pretty commonly used tools not listed--I have yet to invest in a sewing machine, for instance--But this list covers what I use most often because it works for me.

A Note on Safety:
Because I live in an apartment and don't have easy access to an outside workspace, I try to use materials that don't require a lot of ventilation and aren't prone to pungent fumes. However, when it comes to using any kind of spray paint or sanding, I highly recommend doing so in an open space with a mask and protective eyewear. As a general rule, before you begin working with a new material, make sure you're familiar with any health and safety warnings on the labels.
