Not sure how you can teach yourself if you don't know how to do it, but that's just me. Not saying you can't learn though, especially if you're somewhat handy and by nature a DIYer, with reasonable skills. If you're wanting to do this for fun, go for it. If you think it's an economical way to get a bicycle up and running, forget it.

As Andy mentioned, there are a lot of resources in Portland. At last count there were 35-40 framebuilders in the "business." Then there are the wannabees, (or hobbyist builder) of which I am one. There's also a frame class here. Search UBI.

One can get by with very little in the way of equipment unless you want to be totally self-sufficient.
