I have a bachelors degree in business from St. Louis university. I’ve been working as a firefighter for 18 years. I am a battalion chief and do need business skills. I would sure like to do woodworking as a career, be my own boss, etc. but I need to have this job to be stable for my wife and kids. There is so much that you learn not only in college, but also just during that time that I believe it is invaluable. You will have lots of free time to pursue woodworking and are only 17, presumably you don’t have a need to be completely independent yet. Spend this time getting a business degree, doing woodworking in free time and possibly as a side job. That’s just my opinion based on my experiences.
I’m sure either way will treat you well and it sounds like you’ve got a head on your shoulders.
