You shouldn’t need to browse mutch he includes a tool list.
Keys will be your Rabbeting bit that has a 1.5 inch diameter cutter and a 3/4 radius roundover which will make the mating surfaces in the leg joints.

Unlike maloor, Hal’s plans do not require these odd 3 or 5 degree rabbet bits for the back chair rails.

everything else is as you imagine, some gouges, an angle grinder with 60 grit disk for shaping the seat.
A boatload of clamps for the rockers and back brace laminations

Ny Rocking chairs also has a blog walking through what he did – - If I were you I would PM him and he can tell you of any ‘tricks’ he has used/changed that you might want to buy tools for.
