Glaziers and Stonemasons

Our NEH group got to tour both the glaziers' (glass makers') workshops and the stonemasons' yard.
It was Extremely Cool.
It is absolutely amazing what they can do with conservation these days: take out old leading from previous bad repairs of windows, redo stone bits, and so on.

I would have like to have seen that. I've always wondered how stone masons got stone to look so smooth.
