If your seriously thinking of making alot of furniture and of good quality I would say most of the things I list are must haves but not all and there will be more that I miss out.

Power tool: table saw, band saw, jig saw, circular saw or plunge saw, drill and impact driver, bench drill/pillar drill, trim router/router table, biscuit jointer, if you plan to mill your own timber then a thickness planer is a must

Hand tools: hand saws, good measuring/marking tools, various clamps, hammer/mallet, hand planes, chisels, centre punch, screw drivers, socket set (for if you plan on using larger fasteners for the things you make)

Sure there is plenty I have missed out n but that should be more than enough to get you going, sure you will find plenty good deals in the January sales also so a good time to be buying a few bits and Bob's.

hi,
i got a Kreg hidden screw set. they make nice wood working tools.
thats for a drill yea. you need a 6-12inch chopsaw. like a Delta(used).
you might want to consider sand paper, stains, and such finishing-touches; when you have build an item or re-finish stuff.
but starting out dont be too focused on the advanced projects that involve joinery and jigs. work on stuff then: fix it, switch it, or ditch it.
