That's not a shop it's a "showroom" or a setup for a convention.
A shop has actual work in progress, sawdust, wear and tear, glue on the bench tops, coffee cups 1/2 full, snicker bar wrappers, scrap bins of wood etc etc.

I agree Ive never in my career seen a busy work shop that nice
If it wasn't for the photos of the fantastic work they've produced in there, I'd never believed that place has seen a weeks work.
Geez, how are these people able to do such fine work and keep the place and equiptment in that condition
