The two biggest constraints always seem to center around time and budget. If you have more time than budget, try to get tools that are built well and will last a long time. Squares, wood planes, back saw, copping saw, files, rasps, clamps, vise, chisels… Good basic set of wood tools. If your budget allows, look for power tools, a good band saw can help you both rough cut large pieces of wood into workable sizes. You may also want to add a drill or drill press (the drill press can also serve as a sander) and a combination belt/disc sander.

Hope this gives you some food for thought.

I would work on the band saw before the table saw. I have both. You can do most of the stuff a table saw does with the band saw, but not the other way around.

I would get some med. and fine wood rasps, and coarse and fine files. Rat tail, half round, and flat. Also a portable drill, like a cordless. Make sure it has a chuck that will hold fine bits, like those used for hinge pin wire.

It might be cheaper to kiss and make up with your Dad. :o)

The minimum depends on how you want to work. I do mine with a scroll saw (would rather use a bandsaw), a disc sander and a Dremel tool with lots of bits - sanding drums, miniature drill bits, high speed shapers, etc. Minimal kit? A sharp knife and sandpaper! It's mostly about learning how to use the tools you have to best effect. More power tools make things faster and more accurate - if you know how to use them properly. But if you have the time and the inclination, simple hand tools can produce great results too.
