Actually, looking at your tool list again, it appears that you have
enough to start making smaller (but still useful) projects. Start by
making yourself a tool tote to carry the pieces that don't fit in your
tool belt. Make it sturdy, more so than pretty, as it is meant to be
used and abused. Furniture comes later.
You are an adult and, as such, might feel that the things most of us
started out with ... one-board birdhouses, saw horses, napkin holders
and so on ... are somehow too trivial to bother with. But these are the
sorts of projects where we learned the essential first skills that led
us on to larger projects. And they are projects that we STILL make from
time to time, many years down the road.
Maybe before making that deck you should try your hand at making an
Adirondack chair. Search the web and you will find plenty of drawings,
photos and plans for one. Simple looking, it is a fairly challenging
project for a self-styled 'newbie'. Price a nice one in a lawn & garden
center and you'll be doubly motivated. ;-)
You will learn how to cut angles, orient grain, form curves, join wood
at angles with strong joints ... and a ton more skills.
Whenever possible, choose a project that will stretch you skills while
still being in the realm of "doable".
But you already have the tools needed to begin ... so begin.
Make yourself an honest man, and then you may be sure that there is one
rascal less in the world.
