    Use the meter as a reference tool. Test your palm, you should get mid 30s. Test some wood that you suspect is not seasoned, test some that you think is seasoned. test some you know is seasoned. Eventually you will be very knowledgeable about wood seasoning in your yard.

    Moisture meter

    Cheap is fine. Use it as a relative measurement tool. The palm of your hand should be mid 30's as a base number.

    Carpentry tools

    Get corded tools. All the basics. Use portable where needed (drills). Very expensive. 10" sliding compound miter will do 90% of what you need. Its not so heavy also.

    Fishing for ideas.

    Can you paint? If you have the skills to be fast and neat, you should be able to start a business and make a living. Advertise on Home advisor or angies list. Just do interior. IMO its impossible to make a living doing any outside work.
