My advice (worth what you paid for it):

set it aside and start with something in better shape—this is far too ambitious a project given your current skill level and tool set.
The teeth on this one would take many jointing and shaping sessions before they could even be sharpened, and the depth of rust might even make tooth-setting hazardous.

D-8s are incredibly common in the field. Find one in better shape and learn on that one.
