I got a YouTube video downloader app free for Firefox. Went to YouTube and searched for routers, woodworking and for specific tools and downloaded a library of free videos that have helped me greatly to get going with better quality woodwork. I suggest you start with that approach since its much easier for most of us to duplicate what we see done better than just read. That said, the next suggestion is go look up books on routers and router projects on Amazon. I then look for used books of the same title in at least good condition. The cost can be very low to build an amazing library. Between videos and books, I've been able to produce nice results pretty fast. I'm always surprised at the subtle little things in videos and books that make the difference between an OK project and one that looks good and is square. Have fun with this. As you buy more tools, get good, open stands for them so you don't have to bend so much, and put (locking) casters on everything so you push things around for cleanup. Finally, having been exposed to so much smoke, I suggest you wear a good dust filtering mask whenever you cut anything. You don't need to add any carcinogenic dust to your already challenged lungs. Have fun, woodworking is very relaxing and takes your mind off everything else.
