    Quoted from pianz:Deleted post

    It depends upon what you plan on making. If you're making wood furniture, you won't need an impact wrench or an angle grinder. If you are buying non-dimensioned hardwoods you'll need a planer and a sander. If you are creating thin lumber from thick lumber, you'll want a bandsaw to resaw. You may also want a jointer.

    Personally, I think for making furniture you will want a table saw, router and router table (which you can make), orbital/palm sander, biscuit jointer (domino even better but lots more $), drill and drill driver, compressor (get one of the 'kits' that comes with a 16 and 18 ga nailer) and clamps, (lots of different types and sizes). A track saw is also a good investment if you will be breaking down sheet goods (cutting std 4x8 plywood down into smaller pieces). It's a whole lot easier than wrangling on a table saw unless you have large infeed and outfeed tables. I also think a Kreg pocket screw kit is a nice way to quickly and easily make joints. (A good shop vacuum/dust collector is also a good investment)

    I make midcentury modern furniture and own a SawStop cabinet saw which has exceeded my expectations. Lots of good advice from Oldgoat as well.
    I now own Festool and Mafell track saws and use my table saw a lot less now. They’re obviously great for breaking down sheet goods but also excel at jointing, cutting long angles, trimming doors, and other things. The Mafell is superior to Festool but the Festool (TS75)
    has a little greater depth of cut as it’s their larger model.
    Also use a Domino 700 quite a bit and is a huge time saver for loose tenon joints.

    I have been keeping an eye on the market. Of the job site saws I have been looking at, I really liked what I had read about the Hatachi C10RJ.

    A new company, Metabo, has replaced Hatachi so all the Hatachi branded saws are on sale. I see them for $350.00 online. But I bought one at Lowes today for $300.00.

    I hope it works as advertised.

    As per portable saws, dewalts can't be beat due to their superior fence system than any other saws. I've had bosch, rigid, hitachi, kobalt and returned them all or gave them away. they all have the same flaw, fence are extremely hard to keep square on every cut so always have to double check for square which is time consuming.
