opening in Temecula, near Red Hawk on hwy 79. Stopped by and talked with the owner (Tom) today. Plans on having various classes including metal and cnc. Mostly Jet and Saw Stop tools. Store called Saw Dawgs and has a web site. Will also have exotic woods.

There is a place here in northern California (Santa Clara) that is similar.  It is called The Sawdust Shop, been in business for 15 years or so.  It is a full on shop with everything including a laser engraver and CNC machine.  You buy a membership to work there and they have storage areas for your projects that you are working on.  It is a great place for condo livers or apartment dwellers that can't have shops of their own.  You can also buy small hour blocks of time to use the machinery - such as if you had a project that could really use a drum sand but you were not the proud owner of said machine, you can buy an hour of time and use theirs.  Their store itself is pretty small but they can order most things for you if you don't have a source.

This is supposed to have the same type of concept and includes metal working.

 

My old boss lives in that city. Do you know Dan Rubin?

 

No, don't know Dan.

I sent them an e-mail from their contacts. That was on 9/08. Haven't gotten a response. I think they are done. Sad! I was really looking forward to them opening.

There is another place in Temecula. It's been open since January. Nonprofit and low monthly memberships. Run by a Temecula teacher and a bunch of volunteers...

Not sure about Saw Dawgs, though... We need these places around since schools aren't doing shop any longer.
