In Downers Grove. Took a look at your website-very nice work-especially the steam bent table! Also liked your shop pics. You’re right-light is great, and your plant “mezzanine” gave me some ideas for a workshop building I’ve been thinking about.

Happy to share ideas, resources, events, etc. with you.
