ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR: JERRY BEAUDRY
Originally from Chicago, Jerry’s interests in woodworking were developed at a young age with his father who was a general contractor building custom homes. When he relocated to San Diego, he became a Shipwright working in the local boat building yards building and refurbishing wooden vessels to 45 feet.
In 1999 he attended Palomar College where he refined his craft and in 2003 was asked to join the staff as an associate professor in the Cabinet and Furniture department teaching entry level classes and specialized classes in advanced table and chair making while owning and operating a successful custom cabinet and furniture business. He would later develop several advanced classes within the curriculum such as advance veneering techniques, and furniture design with CAD. In 2014 he headed up the CNC effort at the Palomar College to train designers and operators using several different wood CNC machines within the department.
