Carving Technology

Certificate of Achievement /A.S. Degree
(for A.S. Degree must also complete Gen. Ed. requirements)

A certificate is awarded upon completion of the "core" classes which are specific woodworking and related classes. An Associate of Arts (AS) degree program includes the "core" classes plus a complete curriculum of general education liberal arts. A student receiving an A.S. degree would graduate with a major in one of the three CFT areas. Additional information regarding the degree requirement is located on the Palomar College website.

Last Updated: Fall 2013

Carving technology prepares students to make a living at woodcarving. Students explore use of tools and techniques used in carving wood as it applies to furniture and architectural millwork. Students will begin by gaining skill in simple layouts and learn to sharpen and maintain tools. As student progresses, both low and high relief carving as well as incised lettering will be mastered. Period furniture and architectural carvings are eventually mastered. Students will be qualified carvers in furniture shop or prepared to start own business.
