Im not sure what is the point of this but I feel like sharing those 1943 chemicals that are supposed to be in our lab is bit pointless (also its excel file from feb. 2016 so there is probably over 2000 of them by now)

I'm going to assume the O.P. Means a home lab, or a very small QC lab for testing a limited production stream, as in 20 cosmetic types or industrial products.  I am likewise not posting hundreds of reagents,some highly specialized, its an issue of proprietary info.  But we can see how this thread develops.
Hey, I'm not judging.  I just like to shoot straight.  I'm a man of science.

I recently wrote all mine down from the home lab and have over 100 different chemicals. Not including my pure elements.  About 25 of them I synthesized myself just for the fun of having them and adding them to my shelf. 

There are some youtube videos of easily OTC purchased chemicals you should check out.  Sodium borate which can be turned into boric acid whenever you need, baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) which can then be made into sodium carbonate. NaCl is a good one and you can also get iodized salt which is KI right?  Specific 6V batteries (6V?) you can get Manganese dioxide (can be made into certain manganese salts), carbon rods used for electrolysis, and the zinc casings which I personally just melt down and throw into my pile of zinc scrap. Acetone, denatured alcohol (ethanol/methanol), and bleach are easy to get plus you can get crude potassium nitrate from stump removers which can be recrystallized to purify.  Hope this helps fill out that list a little bit.  Have fun and be really safe.  Wear gloves and goggles even if you feel like you don't need them, because THAT is when you will blind yourself or make a silly mistake.

Many strong acids and certain important chemicals are not easily available here for home use unless you have licence for it.

Though i am trying to manufacturing various compounds by referring YouTube and internet.

fire extinguisher is my first thought
Lab coat
a source of lots of flushing water
I will think more on this

One point
being well ventilated may not be enough for caustic fumes

Making what you need seems to be a reasonable goal but the internet can lead you astray unless you verify from other sources. Library maybe?
