Newbie from South Texas

We are in the process of having a garage / workshop built and I'm hoping by summer we'll be knee deep in sawdust--although that will make it difficult to walk around.

Both of us have limited experience with woodworking, but we live in a geodesic dome and with the odd shaped rooms we need to either pay for someone to custom build or we need to build it ourselves. I have lots of ideas and now that we're going to have a workshop to build them in, I'm anxious to get started.

DAMN! Another Texan! Well, you are here, but step out of line and
you are gone!



Welcome to the mad house!

How about a picture of the house?

This is going to turn in to a "Cow Talk" forum!

Hi Julie
Another Texan may be what is needed here. I'm a little farther south than you. Furniture in a dome can be problematic...I used to have a book entitled "Nomadic Furniture" that addressed a lot of issues with furniture in a non-square space. Can't find it right now, but I'm sure if you google the title, you'll find it.

Pictures of the house as requested. Had to take pictures when Houston had snow that stuck to the ground (for a couple hours). The garage is going to the left of the house replacing the tumbledown well house.

There is actually a restaurant in Navasota, Texas that is next to the Auction Barn that is called Cow Talk.
I have eaten there many times, and it's great.....

HHHMMM Could it be because it's FRESH???

Tools are like guns, You can never have enough.
Where did I put that tape measure???

Wow, like the house, just how much square footage do you have?
Did you build it yourself?

Sawduster. Did Cow Talk use be the Yellow Rose, right off the IH-45? We stopped there a couple of times going from Houston to Dallas or back. Good food.
The house has 2400 square feet. A lot of space on the second floor near the outer walls is not usable--too much slope. Didn't build it ourselves. The previous owner built it. Unfortunately, plumbing and electric were not his strong suit and he went for the cheapest materials he could get for cabinetry, flooring, fixtures, windows, doors..... We had to tear out the kitchen from the floor up to get it level--kitchen and living room are on the second floor, bedrooms and bathrooms on the first. I guess carpentry wasn't really his strong suit either.

There used to be a Yellow Rose in Austin, not known for their food though

Welcome

Cow Talk is in Navasota, it has been closed and a new one built next to it.
The Yellow Rose in Leona right off of 45 has been closed for years now. The owner didn't handle his finances very well.

That place is still there and I believe under renovation.
Navasota is on Highway 6 south of College Station.
At the 105 and 6 intersection.

If you get into Houston, ( makes a good trip for a Saturday) check out Rockler.. they are on 59 across from the ole Summit. They have lots of cool woodworking stuff and also cabinet hardware.
Also Woodcraft on 1960 and 45 is a good place for tools also.
