Default Tools needed???

What are some of the basic tools needed to make simple basic enclosures and baffles?? I know you'll need a table saw. What type thoug? Specific ones? Links? Also, I know a plunger router is good to have with round over bit and straight bit. Any other bits that can help? What else would you say is needed?
Thanks guys!

All depends on skills, budget, and desired results. I have built boxes with nothing more than a cordless drill/driver and a jigsaw. My current box tools are a router, jigsaw, rotary saw and my drill/driver. Are my boxes always 100% perfect? No. But are they decent? Yup.

They make guides for the saws, and GREAT call on the clamps. I somehow forgot about those.

Also measure twice, cut once.

You definitely will want a straight and square guide for a saw/whatever you plan on cutting with. Heck, I used to make boxes with nothing more than a router with a straight bit to cut the panels....wasnt the best but I got by. Also, checkout local countertop/cabinet making places (mom n pop type places) and see if theyd let you bring in some pieces rough cut (have them cut panels like 1" oversized at lowes etc) and have one of their guys cut them all to size real quick for you...I used to work at a countertop+cabinet place in town until I was layed off and we werent exactly swamped with business and my owner would be happy with any income he could get, especially something that would take less than 15 minutes such as cutting panels for an enclosure. This way youd at least have decent cuts that are atleast really close.

As for equipment. A drill with appropriate drill bit(s), drivers, and counterbore for the screw heads would be a start along with about (4-6) 24" clamps to hold panels down while you predrill and screw them together. A nice square and tape measure are good things to have too...before you drill and screw the panel down, be sure that it's square or atleast you can make it square with the next panel that goes in.
