Our youngest Violin Schleske Op.318 after Varnishing on the Workbench (February 2021).
The Art of Varnishing (Schleske Op.318).


We are pleased that our book “The Sound of Life’s Unspeakable Beauty” (Eerdmans Publishing, 2020) received the American Book Award from Christianity Today on December 14th, 2020 in the category “Culture and Arts”.

Our 'oldest' Instrument:

A "30,000 year old violin" from 2020!

The wood of our youngest violin comes from a raised bog in New Zealand and is from a trunk that is over 30,000 years old. This wood has tremendous resonance properties. The sound of this violin surpasses everything we have created so far. (The instrument is already sold).

We still have individual pieces of this extraordinary wood for some other violins, violas and cellos, which will be made in our workshop in the next few months. Details
