Hi, this is a great group for help with problems. Not sure what you mean about your skills, but as a guy whose only been doing serious woodworking for a few years, I thought I'd share a couple of things that drastically improved the quality of my projects. First, I've downloaded a ton of videos, which I keep in a computer in my small shop. These contain a lot of tips to make things nicer and more accurate.
Second, I've ordered a great library of woodworking books from used book sites on Amazon. Some are only a couple of bucks each and studied the ones on tuning up tools very closely.
Third, I took the time to learn how to tune up my power and hand tools. This took a lot of careful reading and micro adjustments. I also found lots of youtube videos on the topic, particularly for band saws. Every time I start a project, I make sure the fences and blades are set square. This made the most difference in projects looking good and fitting precisely.
Although not a lot of fun studying and tuning tools up, it has made woodwork better looking and fitting, and a heck of a lot more fun doing projects instead of making firewood.
Enjoy yourself and hope this info increases you enjoyment of this great hobby.
