« Part 12: Aligning and attaching the neck and fretboard Part 13 of One More Guitar series no next part

The bridge is formed and the peg holes and saddle slot are made. Then it is properly aligned and glued to the soundboard.

Thanks. I learned way, way back (described in first video) in a time when specialty equipment wasn’t much available. Today they’ve developed it into a real industry. Stewmac is a big supplier. It’s sort of like Rockler. They keep on developing gadgets that it looks like we all need but can do without and often will never use if we did get it. This build is about as basic in technique as you can get. Not as pretty a process as some but it gets done.
I’m glad you might find it useful. I’m just blogging it for the fun of it.
