You will soon discover that there are several forums to choose from and the other members in the forum should be able to help you get answers to any questions you might have.

Good Plans Give Good Results
The most important thing when you're involved with woodworking is safety. You always need to be aware of the fact that there is potential for injury if you're not careful. Power tools can be dangerous if carelessly handled. This is important to keep in mind even if you've completed many woodworking projects before. Some people say it's actually easier for experienced woodworkers to get hurt since they will sometimes be more careless than beginners but anyone can have a lax moment. Remember, always put saftey first. Think before you cut.

As you can see you need to do three things to start with. Find  good woodworking plans, learn a few rudimentary woodworking skills before you start and be as careful as you can when you start working with the project. It would be great if you could find all the information you need in one place before you start. Then you would be ahead of the game for sure.
