Lost Art Press is great, but not exactly for the beginner. I'm a huge fan of The Wood Whisperer aka Marc Spagnuolo (https://www.youtube.com/user/TheWoodWhisperer). He has a lot of content on YouTube that's significantly higher production quality than everyone else, and most importantly he's very good at teaching.

He has two books that are great for the beginner: -Essential Joinery -Hybrid Woodworking

While he has a ton of free content on YouTube, his guild site offers even more at a modest price: https://thewoodwhispererguild.com/

His Shaker Table project was my first "real" piece of furniture that I built. I've since graduated to designing and building my own furniture. Highly rewarding, and I owe a lot of my skills to Marc's wonderful teaching methods.
