As an excitable but easily frustrated beginner (me that is), I’d recommend that you start with projects small enough to either set aside or throw across the room. :-) My first “real” project was a 6 foot tall storage unit for my wife. I learned a lot, but by the end I was working just to get the thing out of my way.

Pacing is good, as is picking projects that add new skills one (or two) at a time, and keep building on that.

Since you have a lot of used tools, it would e good to find references (online or books, I like books) on tuning them up.

And keep it fun.
