I think the best places to start are woodworking magazines and you can usually find a lot of back issues at the library. Books are sometimes really good but they usually focus on a small area. My favorites are Woodsmith, Fine Woodworking and Wood. It’s a great hobby, start slow with good plans and enjoy.

I’m not much of a reader so when I got into woodworking, I started watching the Wood Whisperer podcast. He does some great work and teaches woodworking in a fun yet effective way. Here is the link:

The New Woodworker's Handbook by Tom Hintz. Written by a woodworker for a woodworker. Lots of good tips on how to setup shop, what each tool does, how to use them, joinery and technique tips, finishing tips, project ideas, and it’s very nicely illustrated. His website is excellent too.
