Teaching myself to build a frame

Have any of you taught yourself to build frames? That's what I'm looking to do, and just thought I'd gather any offered advice.

What tools should I splurge on, what do I not need to?

I'm reading the Paterek book, and looking at lots of bikes and studying their designs.

I'm planning to build a lugged frame commuter.

I definitely have a long way to go before I even start, but again, just thought I'd open this up to any suggestions to a self-motivated newbie.
