I second the table saw cross cut sled for a lot of purposes, but as subroc said. We can't really make suggestions without knowing which direction with woodworking you want to go. If you're new to it, try a few different things and see what feels "right". Some people love turning, but I haven't even tried it and I can already tell I won't have the patience for it.
I thought I was always going to make larger furniture type stuff like my microwave stand, bathroom cabinets, toy boxes, etc., but I'm discovering I have a knack for little craft type things and they're actually a lot of fun. Made a little wine rack, a key holder, a kitchen utensil holder (in progress), and I'm gonna be making a sort of small shoe rack here starting tomorrow. The little things are great for my work schedule. work a few hours in the morning on them, knock them out, and go to work and show off what I did that day and get 50 questions about how I can work that hard before coming to do an 8 hour shift.
