    Regular tools will work fine.

      BAD HABIT - You will get better and cleaner cuts if you (new) carbide saw blades and router bits (cutters). If you want to smooth edges after a cut, use a mounted buffing wheel with out the rouge and don't push to hard as it will tend to burn and melt the starboard - otherwise it will give you a nice smoooooth edge surface. You may need to try a few pieces first but you'll get the hang of it. Also, remember when using Starboard for anyhting on the boat that NOTHING will stick to it to make a seal so plan accordinally. Hope this helps -
