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 2003 was asked to join the staff as an associate professor in the Cabinet and Furniture department teaching 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. Fluent with many CAD programs, he specializes in teaching SketchUp, Vcarve and Aspire.

Chris Nevil
After growing up in New Zealand Chris traveled for many years before moving to San Francisco in 2000 and more recently to San Diego.

Specializing in CAD and CNC machining. Chris has worked as a signmaker, architectural model maker and creating artwork for hotels and commercial spaces. Chris is passionate about engineering and has built an experimental tilt-wing aircraft and renovated several vintage airstream travel trailers.

Currently, shop manager at Maketory, Chris teaches classes including CAD, laser cutting, Waterjet, CNC Router, CNC Mill, and Woodshop.

John Page
John has been a bladesmith for 10 years, practicing all across the US, beginning as a knife maker and swordsmith. Throughout his career, he also explored traditional steel making and a wide variety of pattern welding. Since moving to California in 2016 he has worked as a public educator, demonstrator, and reproduction blacksmith for Old Town State Park.

For the last several years John has explored and developed traditional ironwork and tool making. In February/March of 2020, he traveled to Buenos Aires, Argentina to teach hammer making and the corresponding tooling to local artisans. In addition to ironwork, John is a luthier and fine woodworker, and currently a Sawyer for Lumbercycle, a non-profit sawmill operating across the Southern California region.
