Hi Hoey, Glad you choose to join in the fun. Those of us from America have become fond of you fellas from Down Under. I'm attaching a 10 page pdf about the 18 things that helped me speed up my learning curve. I realize the tools brands are different in Australia than here, but with a little extrapolation, I think you might find it helpful, including helping you avoid wasting money on unneeded items. I will say that of all the tools, a table saw is the number one purchase. It is the center of all woodworking shops. You can do a lot with a circular saw and straightedge, but there's a limit. You have to work with the good face down and laying on a layer of tape on the cut line will help make a decent cut.
If you're going to make furniture, you should get a table saw that takes a dado set of blades so you can cut grooves and even rabbets to assemble really strong cabinets. Lots of information on this in the pdf.
A drill press turns out to be really useful as well.
Making your own router table is pretty easy to do, and it is far safer than working freehand.
At any rate, welcome and I suspect that as you start making things, you'll be as hooked as the rest of us.
The more I do, the less I accomplish.
