I guess the first question is, do you have a workshop? If not, building one could really help you learn a few things about woodworking. Then think about the essentials; workbench, vise, storage, etc. Your bench needs to be pretty heavy duty since you will be doing a lot of pulling and pushing on it. Then comes the tools which you probably need to accumulate over time. When it comes to using only hand tools, consider purchasing the best tools (not the most expensive) by looking at the specs and reviews by pro who were not compensated by the company. Or ask others in the trade. Japan tools make some amazing hand tools but you probably want to use american made tools which can be a challenge. There are several individuals who make various traditional steel tools but I can’t think of any right now(youtube it).
