Glad you decided to join the fun. About 12 years ago, I decided to set up a shop and start doing woodworking. I'd done carpentry, DIY, repairs all my life, but woodworking is a whole different level. It is very rewarding and this site has helped me a LOT. I'm attaching a pdf you can download that's been growing over several years. It's about the 18 plus areas and things that helped accelerate my learning curve. It's 10 pages long, has pictures. I had my best earning years as I built up my shop, so don't think you have to get everything all at once.
Hint, Table saw early on. There are so many things you can do with that one power tool. It's the center of most shops.
This is a truly wonderful, challenging, satisfying addiction/hobby. Welcome to the party, you'll never find a more helpful bunch of folks.
The more I do, the less I accomplish.
