Shaping a bridge for a piccolo

I keep thinking I have a decent pic of a piccolo bridge somewhere on this blog, but I never find it when I try. And since they're all a bit different (even though the general evolution is slow and consistent) I thought I'd put up a couple of pics of the one I made tonight.

First pic shows the initial shaping with a wonderful Japanese gouge. Look. At those. SHAVINGS.

Then I dial in the height, mostly from beneath. And sand it with different grit Abralon mesh up to 2000. Second pic shows it prior to glueing. I will use brads, ok.
