The last step before stringing the violin is the bridge. Much time went into the shaping and sizing of this bridge. The bridge determines much of the sound transfer from the strings to the soundboard, so it is essential to get it right. It also determines the string spacing and height. After carving the bridge to the perfect shape, I laid a piece of sandpaper on the violin top to sand the feet to the top's contour. I was pleased with how the bridge turned out, although I did need to work it a little more after I had the strings on and played it for a while. Oh yeah. Next, I'll take pictures of the final and then record its voice. Stayed tuned!
