About the Venue
Palomar College’s Cabinet and Furniture Making Technology program was founded in 1956. Since then it has built up a comprehensive woodworking curriculum with three fully equipped shops and a wide range courses such as: Furniture Design, Timber Framing, Guitar Building, and Production Cabinetmaking. They like their students to be dedicated to mastering the skills of traditional and contemporary fine woodworking. We are glad to have the opportunity to bring our tools to a venue like this.
We offer free shipping on orders placed at the Event (excluding Workbenches, Vise Hardware, and Dovetail Vises).
