nomatter what don´t forget to use your brain the most importen tool you have :-)
then your hands with all ten digits you still needs them the day you die …. no spareparts avable

pencil , paper and good layout tools and a solid workbench
from ther you can go either the unplugged handtoolway or on the electron killing lane :-)
depeing on how you look at it no one of them is better than the other
but if you combien it and let them walk hand in hand you will get a good mix
the power mashines when you need to make a productionlike work
just be aware that many times a handtool can be faster and make a better work when you
have get the skills
I wont say what powertools you shuold buy I have no idea and knowledge about them
but you can get along way with a copple of saws a few hand planes and a few cheisels and a mallet and a hammer beside the lay out tools the last thing and you proppebly have that already a cordless drill
of course ther is alot of things between these lines you need too like sharpeningstones , pliers , etc

but as other says let the project´s deside more or less what to buy….. but buy only one new type of tool
at a time and take your time to learn to know it in and out and back again so you know what its cable of
including some of the things you never wuold have dreamed of ….. the little sneaky tricks that make
a tool a blast to use becourse you know what it can and even more importen what it can´t
ther is always other ways to work around this

good luck
