Inside an organ shop

This week I had the privilege to take an overnight trip to Atlanta and visit John, who has been doing some pipe organ work there.  Yay for not working!  Because of my awesome connections (and awesome friends), I was able to go inside the shop of Robert I. Coulter Organbuilders and snap some pictures.  They were in the middle of a renovation project, so I was able to see some of the bare bones of the organ.

John tells me this writing is called Skinner script, after the original maker.

Off with the old leather, and in with the new!

Thanks again to John, Robert, and Josh for letting me traipse around with my camera while they try to get work done.   :)
