This question generates a lot of debate. I would start with the kit from Avery or something similar. Then add at least the following tools...
I'm sure that I'll think of some more along the way. If you can think of any let me know.
Of course you will need a shop full of normal hand tools like wrenches, screwdrivers, knives, tape measure, etc.
Obviously you can borrow many of these from fellow builders if you need too. You will soon learn what tools you will need and how much you will need them and if you can borrow some good tools that you'll only need once in a while it can save you a bunch of money.

There is undoubtedly more than one way to build an airplane and some methods that I use may or may not work in any given circumstance. If there is any question please call the kit manufacturer.
