Bridges on piccolos
Yesterday, after returning from the Middle East, I started making the bridges for the piccolos in progress. Actually I finished fretting them before, but didn't blog about it.
I found a small length of very rough bridge blank in the piles and started planing. The neck angle and the dome of the soundboard was identical on both ukes so I set out on a double length piece.
Flip and continue...
After progressing to smaller planes (equivalent of "going through the grits" for those who prefer sandpaper) I had the profile and the height. The bottom will be concave to match the top so I have an extra millimetre still. Cutting time.
