If you’d like to learn the art of woodworking, consider participating in one of the greatest woodworking programs in California at Palomar College. Registration is easy and after you pass CFT 100 and make a clock, you can take literally any other class and have access to a sea of resources and inexpensive urban wood. It’s what inspired us to even exist as a company!
WE DO NOT CUT DOWN TREES but we do work with a lot of different tree services to source logs, and companies like these can help us obtain your logs if you’re having a tree removed.
