Well here's something to get you back in the shop, if only for a day or two. It's a patio tray-table project. Make it out of cedar or redwood or pine (if you want to paint it), and it will look terrific and last a long time.
The plans are free, though you'll have to sign up for PlansNOW's bi monthly e-newletter. You also get an e-coupon that you can use if you decide to buy downloadable plans. But that will be more useful when you get back into the shop this fall. In the meantime, building the cool little table will give you a chance to dust off the tools and do a little woodworking.
