Thank you all for such a warm welcome and good advice.
In reply to what tools I have, it's a mixture of corded as well as battery as I have very limited workspace, so I have to store most of my tools in lockers:
1200W 210mm Compound Mitre Saw (#EMS1221RG) top product
Ryobi 1600W Plunge Router (#RRT1600-S) (I have this mounted under and Ozito Router Table)
Ozito 350W Laminate Trimmer (LTM-3000)
- my daughter suggested this one
Ozito 200mm 800W Table Saw (TSB-0808) small but very effective for what I want
Ozito 13mm Hammer Drill (for use in a universal drill press)
ALDI brand Jigsaw
Ryobi Hammer Drill (R18PD7)
Ryobi 185mm Circular Saw
Ryobi Random Orbital Sander
Ryobi Polisher (( know...it has nothing to do with woodwork, but
Bosch 13mm Battery Drill (old as the hills but it goes like a champion)
Ryobi Air Brad Nailer
Many and varied - most are new, some aren't
I could have gone wild and spent big, but as I'm just starting out, thought it prudent to hold back on the $$
The Ryobi plunge router is giving me grief as the springs are so strong, I find it difficult to push up through the hole on the router table - I'm considering removing the springs to see if that helps.
As I wrote in my profile, I've tried my hand at building garden chairs from plans (mostly found on Youtube), found a few errors, and learnt from them (and, fingers crossed, will continue to learn as I go along).
I'm currently working on another chair which requires lots of smooth edges - enter router stage right, lol.
