Favorite Tool - Opening Skylight

As the weather gets hotter I really do appreciate my opening skylight. I have it behind and above my glass work bench and it really helps with the air flow in my studio. My out take air is directly behind my torch and with the fresh air intake being behind me it really makes for a "clean air" studio. We are often windy here so there is usually a breeze too. Look into opening skylights if you are building a studio, or for that matter any home.

Very cool feature for your studio, Nicole. We have a skylight in our house, but it doesn't open.

Nice! I have opening skylights, but unfortunately also crazy cats which means I can't open them without shutting the door first

We don't have any skylights, but I always enjoy them at other people's homes. Does the sunroof in my car count?

I can see how having one in a studio (especially one using a torch or kiln) would be of great benefit for airflow and cooling.

This time of year they come in so handy, they let the hot air out and cool air in. We live above our barn so it can get really hot in here, they are a life saver!
