Corrugated board usually consists of outer flat sheets (veneers) of puncture resistant paper, sandwiching a central "filling" of corrugated short fiber paper (fluting), which resists crushing under compression and gives cushioning protection to the box's contents. The cardboard has high end-to-end strength along the corrugated flutes, so the box is normally designed with the corrugation running vertically for stacking strength.
Misc small tools: Drill motors at least one, you will drill hundreds if not thousands of holes, but seldom will you need the 1/2 chuck and big power, besides those drills are heavy. one cordless drill is nice to have 18 volt nothing smaller, and a couple spare batteries. Jig saw and finish sanders, just about any will do but get the best your budget will allow. one good random obit sander is a must, sticky back or hook and loop, I've used them both and don't have a favorite.
I almost purchased a rolling computer desk from Office Depot but then decided it was a little short for my uses. I'm a tall guy and generally paint standing up so I wanted something that stood around waist high. My only other requirements were that I could put a glass palette on top and have some shelves for paint, brushes, and solvents, and that the shelves are pretty durable.
Differing construction techniques to select from can also allow you to choose something that matches your budget. Mayhap you don't need a concrete foundation, if this true your project just got a lot simpler and less expensive. Yet even if that is the case, you may still need a building permit depending on size of the structure and what local government requires in your area. And should you decide to add electricity, plumbing and or a phone you'll want to know what the code is for these as well. Forethought and exact planning of every detail will have this all go much easier and again this is where a good set of woodworking plans with diagrams makes all the difference in the world.
Any kind of art can get messy. You will want to create a dedicated work space for yourself where it doesn't matter if you get colors on something. You will need ventilation so that you do not inhale any dust. You can achieve this by working outdoors. If this is not possible, choose a space with an open wall like a garage, or work in front of an open window with fans to blow the air away from you. It's possible to buy or build a spray booth to isolate any over spray and remove it.

Watch their free video on how to mix your paints. Order a quick change brush and begin to think about your compressor. While you do this, you can watch some of the videos on that site to see what's possible with these tools! Soon you will know what area you are most interested in focusing on.
