Thanks everyone for the advice. Ive received the suggestion of the workbench a bunch of times and while I’d love to build one I’d really like to wait until I can build the workbench that I’m envisioning in my head like RG said. I have a combination square, I have enough tools to check for square. I should mention I’m not brand new to woodworking, I’ve spent plenty of time in woodworking shops when I was younger however I never got my hands dirty so now I’m giving it a go because i was always fascinated with some of the projects that would come out of my grandfathers shop, I’m excited to get into a project I just didn’t want to rush into a project and fail, I wanted to find a good project that I could successfully finish to build some confidence. Not a final decision but I think I’m going to build a wall shelf and towel rack. From page 80 of 2010 best ever woodworking projects and shop tips. My thoughts on my next tool were either a track saw, planer, or router table. Thanks again for everyone’s suggestions and advice.
