Starting out with a Table saw is a good way to go. (one with a plastic table top is not as accurate as a cast iron table top), build yourself a nice sled for it. When starting out with young family, it makes sense to keep the price down. You can always upgrade later. You’ll find handy a small 4”x36” belt sander, they usually come with a 6” disc sander. You may want to consider a tool envelope or budget, so you have the funds later as you need additional tools, wood & hardware. Then as you need them, slowly build up your portable power tools, such as a 3”x21” or 4”x24” belt sander, detail sanders, orbital sander. Slowly build up your clamp collection.
