I've been a woodworker for most of my adult life just turning 70 this year. I have always kept it my hobby with the intent to keep it something rewarding.
I have built kitchens, furniture, toys, custom gifts for my children and have had a wonderful time.
Ironically my son has turned out to be quite the cabinet maker, I never knew he was watching me while I was in my shop.
I started playing with wood in the early 70's and there were very few technical resources available except for the local library. Fortunately for me the quarterly newsletter call Woodsmith started around the same time. Ever since their very beginning they always published very nice and well thought out projects. Their projects were, and still are, very well thought out. So if there is anyone out there that is just starting I would highly recommend signing up for their quarterly distribution, you will not regret it.
Many of the finished projects that I have done is based on their projects and they taught me a tremendous amount.
A number of years ago I gave my son my existing shop so he could continue his fun but immediately realized that I had no tools.
Thanks to Craigslist I now have a restored shop. I have a very large 2 car garage and all the tools, including 3 rolling tables are on wheels so there isn't much I can't do.
Back to having fun again.
Bob
