I thought, hey while I have all the equipment set up, why not rough out a few bridges so I won't have to set this up again for awhile.
So I made 4 ebony, 2 indian rosewood, 5 walnut, and 2 olive bridges. The thicknesses vary slightly, but most are a bit over 3/8" so I can bring them down a little if necessary.
This is the first time I've made them up ahead of time. Anyway, thought I'd share.

The cross vise on the drill press gives you action like a mill, so it makes it pretty easy to do things like cutting the saddle slot

Now all's I got to get is one of those vices (got a bunch of other ones) that lets my drill press pretend it's a milling machine...
