Relatively inexperienced with woodworking, but I really enjoy it. I'd like to better understand techniques and also identify some interesting/useful project ideas.

I have only completed a few small projects to date, including a new "built-in" closet for my wife. At this point I've kind of called a timeout since I want to establish a workshop in my garage.

I already have most hand and power tools, and having a dedicated one-car garage is really helpful. In the near term I am building a workbench (sort of a blend of various designs and intuition) as well as storage solutions.
