Tool sticky?

The sticky posts on the various forum sections are all great, and wonderfully helpful to newcomers like me. However, I've been noticing that there's really nothing there regarding tools. There's good tool info hidden within specific build threads. But if you don't know what you don't, know you'll never find what you need to learn (if that makes sense).

If someone were, say... just starting out playing the ukulele, but had aspirations to progress through working on their own ukes (set-ups, etc), assembling kits, then eventually building from scratch - it would be helpful to know what tools are needed along the way. There's the bare minimum, the recommended set, and the luxury items for each stage. There would often be hand- and power-versions that would be mostly interchangeable. There might be specialist tools that even experienced builders might not know exist. Then there's the jigs and other tools you can DIY if you have more skill than spare cash.

Does anyone else think this might be helpful? If so, does anyone want to help contribute? I'd be happy to set up a template for data entry, but I wouldn't be much help populating it.

Same, I mean I'm not an experienced builder, but I know I had a hard time with tools during the summer when I took on a big project. I wanted to build a little log cabin in the back of my yard for a long time and I think the lockdown was the perfect opportunity to get started. It was honestly a really fun way to spend the quarantine. The part with finding out what tools I needed and how everyone is used was the hardest for me cause I never used high voltage power tools before in my entire life. I got a lot of use out of a site here that really helped me understand all the tools better, so this type of articles are really welcome on my part.
