Welcome to the site Rick!
The answer to your question would be where ever you can soak up info. Books, TV programs, magazines and best of all forums like this one from people who woodwork everyday.

Did you say tool sale?

Thanks Woodman. Do you have any advice on what basic power tools to start out with?

It seems to me that most folks agree that a good table saw is one of the essentials. Everything else really depends on what kind of projects you will be doing.
You might check out some of the pics of folks shops to give you an idea. I finally posted mine a few minutes ago. Somewhat cleaned up.

Yeh a table saw is the first thing on my list in fact I was looking at them today. Wow what a vast price range. From $99-$5000 and up.What is a good middle of the road saw say less than a grand that would fit the bill?I only have a 60amp service in my shed so corded would be best.To give you an idea my first project will be a storage cabinet for my daughter's bathroom something small for towels,soap ect.
