Altar & Personal Tools
All of the Amazon links (and some of the others) are "affiliates." If you don't know already, that means we potentially get some type of compensation if you buy something after following the link. (A few of the links in the shop are just Makers that we admire, and we want you to know they are an option. We don't get anything from those sales other than joy.)
I definitely recommend making whatever tools you can and buying handmade whenever possible. Knowing that not everyone is "handy" or "crafty" in the same ways, and that budget is often a concern, I offer these recommendations to get you started in your search for the tools that will suit your needs.
