Billy, Welcome to the group and Welcome to woodworking. If you still have 10 fingers you are starting at a good point. Many woodworkers have less. Woodworking is a great way to spend time, and at the end of the day - you can take a few steps back and see what you've created. I've been at woodworking for occupational, necessity and enjoyment reasons for a long time, but this forum teaches me new ideas every time I visit! You cannot instantly gain years of experience, but you can learn from those who have. BE OBSERVANT & CAREFUL. Protect your eyes and anything else that you wish to retain as you become more "seasoned". If you screw-up something, figure-out what you did wrong and LEARN FROM IT. Think about what will happen when your blades are turning and sawdust goes flying. Pieces of wood can become projectiles and fingers can become floor decor or soup. Wood is easily replaced, while body parts are not so forgiving. The router is very likely the most high-speed tool you will ever utilize. On most cuts, you will need to start shallow * and GRADUALLY work to the desired depth of cut. Use scraps to make test cuts to do similar operations. Look before you leap and you may be on your way to having 10 old fingers!
* Some bits are not made to start shallow, but often benefit from a narrow full-depth precut first (such as dovetails). OPG3
