Education & Student Contest


Castle is proud to support woodworking education. In today’s challenging labor market, it’s more important than ever for us and others to invest in developing talent and to recognize woodworking excellence.

A Primary part of our Education Program is our ongoing, 15% product discount.  We offer this to qualified/accredited educational institutions and programs.  Please reach out to us at or by calling 800.282.8338.

Another part of our Education Program is to inspire students to learn more about woodworking as a career or hobby and to reward student efforts on their projects.  We’re excited to announce our 2023-2024 “What’s Your Angle?” woodworking competition!
