Very cool. Great inside light.

Thanks! The whole workshop, about 1/10 of which is pictured in my shot, is like that. It's in the middle of a building of antiques showrooms, but it's all original. All the antique machines and tools are there as they originally were, ready to go. And they have lots of the kinds of implements they produced there on display too. And over everything, floor to ceiling and everywhere in between, are these rich, dark patinas. It was a gorgeous, bright day outside, and the contrasts in the room, which you both note, were absolutely profound. You didn't just step into the shadows and the patinas but right back into our recent mechanical history. Nice place to visit, but...

A wonderful little world of atmospheric charm! Love how accessible all the shelves and equipment are to the bench top! And magic lighting!
