Matthias Griewisch - Germany

Matthias is not a Luthier, but a cambalo builder, the connection is somewhat scarce, even so the images are fascinating, take a look at the pictures below and prepare yourself for an incredible journy, this workshop is amazing, espcially for the hand tools involved, the fine planes and chisels are all aligned in rows of pure german tydiness.

the workshop from outside, you can see the timbers drying outside

one of his workbenches with his best tools exposed
the many knives involved
and the chisel-gouge rack
the plane rack, the lower shelfe is packed with mitre planes and infill planes, this lot is worth many thousands of pounds
there are some similarities with the luthiers work here and there
