Circuit components are cheap as fuck, so I would imagine making most "elementary" parts would just be a wasted effort (last time I bought transistors they were 15 for $3 at Radio Shack, IC's are maybe a dollar each). I've never seen pure logic gates used in actual circuits though. Admittedly my hands on circuit experience isn't that vast (I took one electronics course in college and dicked around on my own), but I think all logic gates are done in the context of integrated circuits which you can just pick up.
