What type of woodworking are you going to do and what tools will you have. A dust collector is great for larger tools and a vacuum like a dust extractor great for smaller ones like Sanders.

Dust Collectors move large volumes of air at lower suction ( 5-10 inches water).

Shop vac move less air but higher suction (50-100 inches water).

Either way get good filters rated as HEPA.
