What are the types of tools that I would need to have access to in order to build something like a table from wood?
It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form.

It depends in no small part on how you wish to construct the table. For instance, if you wish to do a simple screw or nail construction, it's a different set of end tools than if you wanted to do dove-tail joints, or biscuit joints, or mortice and tenant joints...
The basics (screw construction)
- Measuring tape
- A straight edge (usually part of a related tool)
- A saw
- A drill (for pre drilling screw holes)
- A screwdriver or driver bit for your drill - for installing the screws
- Several grits of sand paper from coarse (60 grit) to ultra fine (220 grit)
- A sanding block (flat surface used to keep your sand paper flat)
