Here is my 3 cents. All of the previous post are great. Stepping into woodturning is a super rewarding and can be super expensive. As you are doing ASK a LOT of questions, in general buy the best tools you can afford. Find and join your local club. Also join the AAW (see Often at your club you will find members selling different tools at bargain prices. Most of my tools are used tools and I could not afford all I have if I purchased them new.

Get your girls involved. I just got my 12/10 year old grand daughters involved and they are are super excited. Often a club will let youth member join free or at a super discount. Possibly your wife might like to join in and make it a true family event.

Possibly there are tools that you can make at a fraction of what it would cost to buy. Again you have an opportunity to do something with the family.

One closing note – ENSURE you ALWAYS think and practice safety!
