well i would suggest finding something that you want to have or need to have around your house and try to build it. also there are a lot of very experienced people on this site that could help you out if you have any questions on constructing whatever you are going to construct.

most get their starts in these ways:
1) neighbor or relative taught you as a kid2) high school or other class as a kid3) Adult education classes4) Classes at woodworking schools and stores like woodcraft5) read books and start simple6) Do any of the above and come often and ask questions in places like lumberjocks.

Well I would say that you definetly have the tools to do somehing pretty impressive. I would start with something easy and work your way up. Start out with some simple boxes, then make a simple styled side table, and if you want to do something even bigger, go right ahead, if you have any questions all of us are here to help you suceed. I am working on a jewlery box, it’s pretty fun, you definetly have the tools for that. Just experiment with some stuff and find out what you can do. You will be amazed at the things that you can do that you didn’t think you could.
