I don't live close to you, but I could help a bit. I am in the process of making my own dugout (almost done), and had to figure it out through research, asking on this forum, asking an Amerindian friend of mine who has made them, and trial and error.
You'll want at least 1 ax and 1 adz. The ax needs to be handy and versatile, I used a Condor Swedish style felling ax. Some folks might also suggest a broad ax. The most useful adzes will be two-handed flat and curved (gutter) adzes, but especially the curved one. These can be hard to find at good prices. A machete or hatchet may come in handy at times, as could a large chisel or slick. Some folks may use a plane, draw-knife, or scorp for smoothing. A chainsaw can be BIG help... but some folks see it as cheating.
Lastly, fire can be a great tool. You may use it to help remove wood, to help cure the wood, and/or to help heat the wood to widen the canoe. The North American 'indians' usually used fire to help weaken and eat away at the wood. The Yekwana in South America use fire in the hollow of the dugout to heat it in order for it to be widened. The Ket in Siberia have their dugouts held over a fire to heat it enough for widening. The Haida (and other NWest coast 'indians') steam it. I believe some Caribs (in Caribbean area) dump water into the hollow and use heated rocks to bring the temperature up and thus make the canoe more pliable. There are dugout styles from Europe (simpler perhaps), Africa (the West African ones are amazing), and Asia (check southern India, China, SE Asia, Papua New Guinea, etc.). Polynesian dugouts with outriggers and sails get even more complex.
I think it would help for you to envision the style(s) of canoe you'd like to make. Then gather the necessary tools if you haven't already.

Hope this helps. I am building one in the Yekwana style, in Venezuela called a 'curiara'.
Keep us posted, and ask any questions.
I'm sure the many knowledgeable folks here can weigh in with their experiences and opinions.
