Some good tips
I found some good tips in this video series but there is too much repetition. Almost one third of the second video is spent going over what was in the first video.

I have no formal training or experience in woodworking and some explanation from experienced wood workers should help.

Needed something with basics for a beginner, thought this would be a good choice. I like that it includes power tools and hand tools.
