Finished finishing… and some bridge glue up practice

Ok. I’m calling the French polish done. I will not touch them again, I promise. Shellac and alcohol has been put away. I’ll let them cure for a couple days.
Meanwhile I practiced a bit by removing and making a new bridge for el cheapo guitar. Bridge was falling off, but had some metal hardware that I had to drill out. Took longer to get that off than to make a new bridge. I glued it down today.
Need to figure out new clamps. My only clamps that work are big metal bar clamps that have a 7” throat. I’m just not too keen on putting these through the sound hole on the ones I just made.
I’ll either make or buy some wooden cam clamps I think.
