Hey Preacher Dave,
You've chosen a great hobby that will keep you sane during the crazy times. I would recommend getting or making a bench first thing. Make it heavy and sturdy. As you build the bench, buy the tools you need. When you're done, you've got a place to work and some tools. Pick another small project (a box you could use as a toolbox for example). Corded tools should include a drill, a jigsaw and a circular saw. Hand tools would include a hammer, set of screwdrivers, crosscut hand saw, an inexpensive set of wood chisels (you can upgrade later), twist drills, a set of spade bits and whatever you see you'll need to complete a project.
Of course, a router will become your best friend at some point in time, as well as a band saw and table saw.
Start makin' some sawdust and enjoy!
