I'm trying to identify the steps and risers.

There is LED strip lighting affixed to the underside of the nose of each step. The light is shining on the risers a little bit and also illuminating about half of the step below. You can see the little bright dots reflected on the third illuminated step.

Hm

Regular stairs, with a strip of lights under the bull nose leading overhanging edge of the tread, two stairs have lights that aren't lit...

What am I missing?

It's pretty disorienting. The bottom two steps line up exactly from the angle of the photo (you can't see the risers), the next two steps have the reverse of natural lighting (lighting where a shadow should be), and the top two steps DON'T have rope lights, breaking the pattern.

I'm sure they thought the LEDs would be a cool addition, but they make the steps a little more hazardous by making them hard to see.

Ah, thank you. I couldn't figure out why they looked weird, and didn't think of step lighting.

Here's another great bench too nice to use...

Tell me more about this “cleaned up” you mention. I am curious what that is.

Every shop I worked at the benches were brushed off and the floor swept at the end of the day. Home shops, not so much.

I think they just swept up for the pic. Also sawdust on the other (left) side, too.
