Agree with Bent on the guitar tools. Stewmac has great tools, and prices to match! Grizzly has some great tools, and their prices are not too bad.
As far as your first build, it might not be a bad idea to either visit a luthier who is willing to show you maybe a few jigs and the tools they use, or buy a cheap acoustic from a pawn shop to take apart to get the real feel on how it is built. I only build solidbody electrics, but I took apart a lot of them to make sure what I was doing was right. It really paid off.
