My trainee @violins.vandamme has five days to finish this violin in white, before returning to Belgium. Will he make it? I think so!
It was a true honour to deliver this special violin to Mr. Arve Tellefsen today! #legend
Say hello to this handsome violin that was born today! I handed over some nice wood to @williamszott some months ago, and challenged him to make his own interpretation of my personal model (in his own shop in UK). I’m very happy with the outcome:) It has been varnished and set up by yours truly here in Oslo, Norway #playvonderlippe
A shadow is a dark area where light from a light source is blocked by an opaque object. It occupies all of the three-dimensional volume behind an object with light in front of it. The cross section of a shadow is a two-dimensional silhouette, or a reverse projection of the object blocking the light. @wikipedia
Last coat of varnish today on this violin by @williamszott on my von der Lippe model. Looking forward to string it up next week!
In the past few weeks I’ve got a lot of private messages asking varnish related questions. Would really like to answer them all, but time is too short. Nevertheless, Internet is a goldmine for people who wants to learn this wonderful craft (or should we call it art?). When I started in 1992, there was just a handful of books available that could really help a young maker. Today, with Youtube, forums and social media, there are so many sources of knowledge! On the other hand, trying to understand which people and information you should trust is a different story. #nofilter
Going to much towards a dark color is always a danger when varnishing... #stopnow
I just wanna thank you all for the support! 10.000 followers is surely a big number, and from posting my first image in 2012 of my old Pavoni coffee machine up to today has been a wonderful “voyage”. I was lucky to be featured by the official @Instagram blog back in 2014, after they saw my photos and small videos giving insight into the weird world of violin making. When Instagram had their first official meeting in Norway a few years later, I was invited to the panel of speakers. A true honor. I’ve discovered so many amazing people and brands on Instagram, I really like the fact that a great photo is what captures my interest. Thanks again ❤️🎻
First coat of color varnish goes on today. Remember that you can pinch and zoom this video! #details

Today’s visitor, @ingriddnilsen von der Lippe violin made for her in 2014. So nice to see and hear it again 😀🎻
I Cremona utdanner de fiolinmaker i verdensklassen. Her studerte også Jacob von der Lippe som nå er svært anerkjent for sine fantastiske instrumenter. Nå lager han blant annet Arve Tellefsens fiolin nr.2. Følg ham gjerne og ta del i prosessen med hvordan han lager et godt instrument. #stradivari #cremona #violinmaker #dolcevitano #italiaguiden #fiolinbygger #playvonderlippe
