Any decent set of instructions for the novice luthier (i.e, every in-depth guide I've seen in print or on the web) has a tools list and a materials list. I've looked most closely at a book by Irving Sloane ("Classic Guitar Construction," Stirling Publishing 1989), which describes how to make a Torres style guitar. Although no power tools are absolutely required to follow his instructions, a jigsaw would be awfully useful.
I would recommend checking out this book, if you can find it, and/or William Cumpiano and Jonathan Natelson's "Guitarmaking: Tradition and Technology" (Chronicle books 1985). They're both interesting. There's also something out there by Jim Wiliams called "A Guitar Maker's Maunual" (Hal Leonard 1986), but I've never actually seen that.
I'm hoping to make a guitar myself, some day, and being a bookish fellow, I'm inclined to read as much as I can before then. Already, I'm finding a variety of opinions on tonewoods, bracing, truss rods, and the resonating frequencies of the top and back. The violin literature is also potentially useful.
Speaking of soundboards, I'm just going to drop this link Azalais posted in a discussion about spruce vs. cedar, just because I think it's one of the coolest pages ever: http://www.zavaletas-guitarras.com/files/gallery.htm
. After listening to lots of MP3 samples of different guitars on this page, I think I may like spruce a bit more than cedar.
