At least this guy learned something about himself:

I’m not a real handy guy, especially when it comes to power tools — table saws, routers, jigs. They’re scary. Noisy. Intimidating. Most have teeth. Plenty of teeth. Spinning. Fast. Very fast. Just one mistake … I won’t go there.Woodworking has taught me to overcome that fear, giving me confidence and teaching me how to use at least a half-dozen basic tools safely and properly. These are tools I never would have picked up otherwise.

In addition to overcoming fears, you will just generally feel more comfortable with “handyman” type of stuff. Stuff that once seemed intimidating, in terms of maintaining a house, might start to seem quite a bit less intimidating.
