A few Steps and Details in 'The Making of'
The originator: Mr. Oläv van Woudenberg
The origin for our Passion in Sample Cases was fired by Mr. Oläv van Woudenberg
who inspired me to go a little further in cases and wood... He sponsored a
birch plywood attache case you can see on:
when we presented the unique Finnforest Wooden Bath at VSK in the Dutch Jaarbeurs.
Thank you very much for the everlasting inspiration Oläv!

Here the prototype is shown. Form design to realization. For one piece and for series.


Carolien is also the team leader of our trainees. They all develop the necessary skills step by step according
to their individual level.

Laminated mahogany for the grips

A lot of treatments and actions are necessary. It seems simple but it isnot. A few pictures...


Drilling holes with precision and with all PBM


In this way Ritmeester BV wants to play an active role in the development of our beautiful profession.
During the past ten years we offered traineeships for more than 100 young enthusiasts. See: On above picture one of our trainees
learns the CNC milling of the MDF inserts.

Details such as finishing are a very important part of everyday work

Precision leads to perfection and
Practice Makes Perfect

To show how to do it.... Carolien Laro is instructing here and concentrated attention makes a better result


Hundreds of parts... and thousands of treatments
