I mentioned TechShop last week. TechShop is the open access workshop where they provide the tools like welders, laser cutters, CNC lathe, powder coating oven, sign making machines, industrial sewing machines, and other industrial tools for the kinds of projects you see at MAKE.
TechShop in Menlo Park, California plans to expand throughout the USA this year, with workshops in Marin, Sacramento, Los Angeles, and San Diego, CA; Seattle; Portland, OR; Austin, TX; Orlando, FL; and Durham, NC.

I can't wait for the one in Austin to open up! Tools are fun...big tools are more fun! It would be cool to learn some TIG welding too...I would like to build my own frame one of these days...
