My tip would be
Decide what you want to build, then plan the steps required to build these pieces, then get the tools to perform those tasks efficiently! Take your time and enjoy, ( work safely)

Dry fit all glue joints before putting glue on them. If clamping is going to be complicated then test all the clamp positions before putting glue on the joints.

Read, understand, and follow the operating instructions for each power tool that you use.
Measure twice, cut once.

Take the router out of the box (first step).Always cut end grain first. Start with a shallow setting for any router bit being used, then gradually increase the depth of cut until desired depth of cut is achieved. Material such as oak,maple (hard woods) may need a micro cut near end of desired setting to remove any burn marks that might appear. Happy routing.

The main difference between a novice and an expert is that an expert knows how to fix the mistakes so that they don't show. That knowledge usually comes from trying and failing and figuring out how to fix it so that you don't have to start over.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

As a hobbyist, I like to try a new technique on each project--keeps me moving forward, and gives me additional tools for later projects.

Safety starts with how we dress for the session--avoid loose-fitting clothing and open front shirts/vests, especially when using a power tool.

Always practice safe woodworking practices. Safety glasses, hearing protection, push blocks, dust mask are all a must IMHO.

Sometimes I wonder whether the world is being run by smart people who are putting us on
or by imbeciles who really mean it.
