I use a foldable table, backgrounds, and various lights: umbrellas, softboxes, a ceiling mounted light, speedlight, a Micro LED, a negative viewing light (versatile!), and a some sort of table top studio light that I cant for the life of me think of the proper name for nor can I find a picture of. Depending on the items I am photographing I use different lights to get different effects. When in doubt, I would suggest going with softboxes as they provide more light.

I'm not an object shooter, but I watched lots of object shooting in real life. I think the hardest part is managing the reflections, so you will need 3-4 reflectors of white and black. In addition, small objects need small lights (or big lights far away from the object) to create decent soft shadows which will emphasize the shape of the object.
