Wood shops always center around the table saw. It is the workhorse of the shop. A router table would be a close second place for me. I use the two every project I get into. If you buy wood in S2S, a planer and joiner would be the third and four choices.
If you do not find joy in working with wood, don't bother buying anything. Just have someone else make it for you and you'll be money ahead. If I sold all my 'stuff', I could buy no less than four of darn near everything I've ever made. However, woodworking helps me keep my sanity.
