You would need basic tools if you want to start building. You need a saw to cut through wood. You also need a hammer, nails, screwdrivers, glue that works on wood and spare wood (you never know what may happen). A spare room or a workshop is also needed to give you enough space for your project. Also have a first aid kit nearby in cases of cuts and bruises. Amateur carpenters usually incur a lot of injuries.
Another thing you need to think of is the design of your project. You can view different designs in the web or in magazines. There are also a lot of tips in the web on how to make woodworks.
