Bridge Mounting & Custom Wood Knobs

So these knobs are from a little etsy store and are custom made. The place is called archipelago glass. They are made from cocobolo and have a pewter trim.

I mounted the bridge first with the stew Mac double sides tape. This tape once held with clamps for a while, takes an ENORMOUS amount of strength to pull apart. For my router template I had to use a blade and pry it apart.

I needed I make sure the strings would e safely within the fretboard. They were so I drilled the holes and mounted the bridge. Now all I need to do is drill the tuning peg holes and then shape the neck. The control cavity and pickup cavity should be done by today. I really want to be done within a day or two so I can start the finishing process.
