    Default VIDEO- Making a ukulele bridge in real time (Almost)

    In this video I make a Ukulele bridge in basically real time, minus walking back and forth to various machines, camera setup, and about 4 mins of sanding at the end.

    Steps are
    1- Marking out string hole locations.
    2- Drilling those holes.
    3- Countersinking holes.
    4- Rough shaping bridge.
    5- Sanding (I skip this boring part which was about 4 mins).
    6- Re counterbore (I usually only counterbore once at this stage around 220 grit)
    7- Radius the bottom to match the top radius (mine is 28')- I forgot to film this part but that is 30 seconds.
    8- Wax.
    9- Buffing.
