Just a suggestion but you’re sorta reinventing the wheel. There are a number of good basic home repair guide books available on the market. I’m betting there are several at any local library. I’m remembering one I gave to my daughter put out by Reader’s Digest or Time – Life, I can’t remember. It was very good and has served her well. Covered basic tools and techniques, basic projects and home repair guide.

Some of what you’re mentioning isn’t book learning stuff so much as it comes with experience and a little coaching like your Dad gave you. Like I learned to mark with a V but to make the leg of the V a little longer on the side of the line where you wanted to cut, so when you got to the saw you remembered which side is cut off. Keeps you from being a saw kerf too short. I’d check that out first unless you want to publish a book.
