I agree with all of the above. Mainly, don’t get discouraged by the seeming “perfection” of the projects you see presented by others. For every one of those you see, there are lots of mistakes made in getting there. Getting books on basic woodworking is an excellent way to get started. But, again, most books contain so much information you can easily get overwhelmed. As said above, pick a simple project, find out how to safely cut the joinery and assemble the pieces for only that project. Then, go do it. If you have a problem along the way, post a question and a photo or two here. Have fun.
