Fifty-Plus Years of Excellence

Fifty-Plus Years of Excellence 1956-2011 With an annual enrollment of 2,000 students in over 50 different classes, the Palomar College Cabinet and Furniture Technology program offers the most comprehensive woodworking curriculum in the nation. Utilizing three fully-equipped shops, our 4 full-time and 21 part-time instructors provide a breadth of courses and depth of expertise impossible to obtain in smaller programs.

Our courses range from Furniture Design to Timber Framing, and from Guitar building to Production Cabinetmaking. Whether your goal is to build the skills to enrich your retirement or position yourself for a lifetime of satisfying work, we have the courses for you.

By the end of our program you will have had the opportunity to build everything from a hand-crafted clock to an elegant Sam Maloof rocking chair. All we ask is that our students stay as dedicated to mastering the technical skills of traditional and contemporary fine woodworking as we are to teaching them.
