What tools can you use to cut HDPE into the shapes you want?

by hand use a coping saw, or a hand held power jig saw.

then use a hand held power drill to make holes.

if your making holes for screws, drill slightly smaller than the screw hole, and the screw with be self threading

Just an addition: for thin sheets of HDPE, like less than 1/8", you can use metal sheers or a good pair of sharp scissors.
