I forgot to mention that Dennis was also an amazing photographer (surprise, surprise – will his amazing list of talents never end????!). The last room we still have to go through is his elaborate dark room, filled with antique cameras and photo equipment. Here are some photos of it:
Yesterday I found a few lovely family photos taken during the early days of the work shop.
I also found a vast collection of jars containing raw sapphire, agate, and ruby. This must be the stash I have heard so much about that he used for making jewels from scratch.
Here are more photos of other items in the shop. A surplus of collets of every size and make (a few small sets and many singles), a cabinet containing almost every type and size screw imaginable, and some microscope and machine parts/accessories.
