    I believe that’s called a luthier, said the Dutchman. (I first encountered this word in an amusing Canadian novel, The Lyre of Orpheus by Robertson Davies. A friend of mine builds guitars. He’s called a luthier, too.) Much amused by your pics of Amsterdam, featuring details that I never noticed in the many years I lived there. Carry on!

  • I Googled “vioolbouwer” and got back “violin maker” as a translation.

    I stand corrected. :->
