Later, I received these photos, with the caption: "Gluing on your bridge with some glue I found in my Dad's workshop."
First, measuring for the right spot.
Looking good. Hopefully, Kirk won't mark the spot with a knife he found in his Dad's workshop . . .
Kirk explains: "First we have to chisel away the lacquer where the bridge goes. Better measure twice, chisel once!" If you look closely, you can see the faint lines where he scored the bridge outline before chiseling.
Ready to glue.
Next time- the last few construction photos!
