New post, new year, new shop!




This blog has been accompanying me through many adventures. It is filled with posts of my activities as leatherworker and henceforth it is going to contain information regarding violinmaking. This is my true love and destiny, my heredety and passion. From the 12th of January 2015 you can find me in my shop in Schweigaardsgate 58a in the old part of Oslo. It is very easy to find and very nice to visit me, you can always phone me first on +47 45545157
Can't wait to see you all!!
