+ 1 on what Bob Kollman said – the trinity – table saw, jointer, planer. Don’t get diverted into bandsaw, or drill presses till later. Just remember the mantra – table saw, jointer, planer – and you’ll be ok. For hand held stuff, a drill and, as Bubinga says, a decent router kit. But, I would lean toward the Bosch 1617EVSPK kit. It cost less and has less play in the plunge rails.
