hey y'all. I have the parts necessary to build my first CBG but no saw or drill or tools at all as I just moved to nyc. Anyone know a place here I can go to get some help putting it together?

Upstate here. Wynantskill. About 15 minutes northeast from Albany Built about 5 now an working on a really cool mandolin with my son right now. My avitar is the first one we built, It was a project for some father and soon time. We are hooked.
