If a course is available take it
Go to library, check out some books, read same. Buy copies of the ones you
are comfortable with.
Go to news stand/bookstore. Buy every woodworking magazine they have.
subscribe to the ones you feel comfortable with.
Order every free catalog you find offered in the magazines
Buy Weekend woodworking projects (I think that is what the title is).
When you are not studying the books and magazines try some of the simpler
projects in the Weekend magazine.
Buy only the tools you need for those projects preferably restricting
yourself, for the time being, to hand tools..
Do not spend any large sums of money on any power tools until you truly
understand and do not have to ask what the difference between a jointer and
planer is or which you should buy first.
