Learning Center


At Berkeley Point we take pride in doing things with our own hands. We feel that one can do anything as long as they have the right tools and the right information. We've assembled a number of "Learning Center" documents to help you in using our products, doing it yourself and having the satisfaction of doing a job right the first time (and learning a few things, too, we hope!).
