Bridge building

Where’s that confounded bridge? Working on it.  Commence bridge making sequence-

Planed to dimension.  The grain in these pieces was really nice, it planed really easily.  Cut the ends square.

Marked and scribed the cut lines.

Cut depth of wings with a saw and chiseled flat.

Marked and cut saddle slot and string block to depth.

Chiseled to profile.

Made a little chisel tip on an old file to get into the 3/32” saddle slot.  Still need to taper the wings and drill the angled holes for the strings.  Then clean up with sand paper.  Then on to bridge number two.
