Yokuts Custom Woodworking
began as a training program to teach vocational skills to
members of the Tule River Reservation. Focusing initially
on cabinetry for new housing, has grown beyond its training
program roots and become a full fledged commercial operation.
Deriving its name from the indigenous people of Californias
Central Valley, Yokuts Custom Woodworking is a prime example
of the mission of Tule River EDC. By creating sustainable
jobs with transferable job skills for Tribal members, and
at the same time creating revenues to support tribal programs
such as education and health services. Yokuts Custom Woodworking
is a Tribal success story.
While cabinetry for
new homes is the prime focus of Yokuts Custom Woodworking,
plans are being developed to branch out into other areas of
woodworking. Always seeking for advantageous markets is a
key to success, a formula that Yokuts Custom Woodworking intends
