I am in the process of adding onto our existing house with a garage and in the back on that a dedicated woodshop. I have done some house remolding so my construction knowledge is pretty good. I am looking to purchase a basic woodworking DVD collection to help me in my future hobby. I have come across many only that range from $29.99 to a 15 disc $129.99. I am curious if anyone has bought any of these resources and maybe guide me to one that would cover a lot of great information that I could revert back to when I come into something that I am unfamiliar with.

Do you have any ideas for a beginner?

Not a DVD but check out Sketch up would be a very helpful skill to learn.

Check out Shop Class On Demand from Popular Woodworking. Lots of videos for beginners all on a streaming site so you can watch them anywhere. Sketchup, tool basics, jigs, etc. Use this link and get it for 25 bucks for 6 months.

sometimes if you sign up for a WW magazine subscription you get a free dvd as a sign up bonus.

But rather than buying stuff check out tv. If you have a DVR set it to record things like this old house, new yankee workshop, rough cut, the woodwrights shop, the woodsmith shop. there might be some others that i forgot too. most of its on PBS. try searching terms on your DVR search function like wood or woodworking and see what kind of list it autopopulates—then record it all.
