Welcome bro! I'm just south of the river from you. I'm about an hour from durant right off of 75. Definitely in a good place. These guys have given me a lot of good advice here.

From NH - Welcome and congrats on the upcoming big day.

Unless you're marrying money... go easy on buying tools. Only buy the tools you need for the particular job you're doing.

If you're new to woodworking - start with simple joinery and build things for your workshop like a workbench, router table etc. Also - don't throw out your cutoffs, use them to practice more complicated joinery. I've been a serious woodworker for about 12 years now and I just used some scraps to try out dovetail joints on the table saw. I need to use up a few more pieces of scrap before I use those on furniture.
