I don't want to bring you down but a dining room table is a big project for your first undertaking. Depends on how fancy really, A router would go a long way for the table top, either buy or have somone turn the legs for you. Now to confuse the issue, last week I was having this discussion with my local exotic wood supplier (The Woodshed) and he said that many of the newer (within the last 3-5 years) plywood veneers are failing because there is a movement to get formaldehyde out of the glues.
I was thinking about building a nice table out of Maple, have a couple of leaves for company. When I started researching it I found the top is much the same as when I did solid doors on our kitchen cabinets.
Recently purchased some new tools and currently reorganizing The Aerodrome Studio, my metalworking studio in a 2-car garage, where I build riveting projects.
All of the mentioned power tools would make the job go faster and easier but tables, chairs, and even houses have been around for much longer than power tools have, so you can obviously get by without some of them if you are willing to sweat a bit.
Our family has had the same small little dining room table that converts from round to oval for several years.  It came with 4 chairs, so as our family grew, we added chairs and squeezed around it.  When baby number 6 announced his upcoming arrival, we decided it was time to do something about that!
After getting the table supports in, it was time to put the breadboard ends and the tabletop pieces on. Once the tabletop pieces were on, we were thrilled with our first ever building project!  We had used our saws many times before in home restoration projects, but never to build ourselves a piece of furniture.

If this is your first project and you want to go all solid wood, you're going to be gluing up wood. I worked for the steel shop and did all the cutting, welding and clean up on the base, my boss did the finish, which was really a patina not painted as the article stated.
I've been told that by the woodworm mentioned in my previous post, and these end tables used 1" planks that have warped a little since they've been finished.

If you are planning to take up woodworking as a hobby, I would recommend starting with a smaller project (maybe a coffee table or hall table) to help you develop your skills and build your collection of tools. That means a good table saw, a jointer and a belt sander (or a big stationary drum sander $$$$$).
