How to become a good woodworker?
Simple question. Im a Senior in highschool and I would like to fill the rest of my life being able to build things out of wood. How do I start?
Suggestion by Gurdial Sandhu
by doing work carefully

Like anything else in life, you get better with practice. Start with simple projects, then increase the difficulty as your ability increases.
Suggestion by Boomzilla Volcanoduck
depending on where you are you might be able to rent time at a community woodshop as a stepping stone. If you’re thinking about spending money on college to this end I recommend finding a college with a fine arts woodworking program.
If you have to do it yourself just start simple and build up a woodshop slowly. There is a LOT you can do with a few simple/cheap tools. I started out in the spare bedroom with a drill, circular saw, miter saw, router, and jigsaw. Think about building things out of pre-cut lumber. 1×4 pine boards can be turned into awesome and cheap furniture if you build with care and planning.
To acquire tools think rummage sales and craigslist. I’ve found all the tools I listed above plus a 12″ bandsaw and tablesaw for under $ 200 total, it just took a while!

Hopefully you have a woodworking class at your school. That’s the place to start. Then talk to your teacher about how to do more or where you might apprentice or have an area to work.
If you have no woodworking class or shop at school, try to find someone local that you like who needs helpl around their shop in exchange for teaching you things.
The best way to learn to do this sort of thing is to get as much exposure to it and as much practice as you can.
