If you've ever wanted to build something or had an idea, there's a new place in to check out.

California-based TechShop has opened its first Texas location in Round Rock this month. Techshop is a membership-based workshop with the tools to make anything you can imagine.

"Anything you can dream in your mind to build, you can actually build it here," manager Brian Hatfield said. "We do not build anything for you. We teach you how to build it yourself."

The shop serves as a playground for creative types.

"This is an area that is borne on innovation that totally gets the convergence of art and technology," Chief Experience Officer Dan Woods said. "Really, what TechShop is doing is fueling the birth and growth of small businesses and jobs."

For those interested, a basic safety course is all that is needed.

Techshop's Round Rock location will hold an open house on Oct. 20 and 21. For more information, click here.
