All the tools in the world cannot substitute practical experience / skill. While working in Iraq I had a cordless drill, circular saw, handsaw, file and two screwdrivers. Made furniture from scrap plywood / pallets / or crates I took apart. While I did not have a planer or a sander, sand and some time can be used to smooth rough wood. Did it inside the “shop” pictured below.

Point here; work with what you have now. See what tool is needed next or the most and upgrade. Learn to use the new tool. Lots of people buy 5-6K of equipment and a year later it is gathering dust because something did not work or they got discouraged from a few fails.
