Most of us have our private places or our work shops that are set up how we want them.

Now consider that others will have their "hide away cave" vastly different than a wood worker if they are a painter like Sir Winston Churchill or writer like Mark Twain.


The Wright Brothers Bicycle shop has one of them working at what appears to be a very large vise holding a bicycle frame.

I imagine one of their bicycles would be quite a collector's item.

The building they are working in is also the same building they constructed the first airplane in.
That building is now located at the Greenfield Village next to the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn MI.

If you have never been, this is the most amazing collection of American history I have ever seen. They have.

The rocking chair from Ford's Theatre (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ford%27s_Theatre) in which President Abraham Lincoln (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abraham_Lincoln) was sitting when he was shot.
The 1961 Lincoln Continental (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lincoln_Continental), SS-100-X (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SS-100-X), that President John F. Kennedy (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_F._Kennedy) was riding in when he was assassinated.
The bus on which Rosa Parks (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rosa_Parks) refused to give up her seat,
