Welcome! I'm new to beekeeping as well but know enough to know your previous hobbies will serve you well in beekeeping. While making hives and frames may not be the highest form of carpentry, you will be ahead of the game for sure. If you already have a pneumatic staple gun you will be pleasantly surprised at how much work it will save you. Also, wine making and brewing dovetail very well with beekeeping. Nothing finer on a warm summer day then drinking a honey amber you made with your own honey!
