Love how this bridge came out. I didn’t have to glue in the saddle it fit so tight into the bridge slot.

Thank Bob and Uncle John,

The soundboard wood is acacia, and the bridge is french oak from a local vineyard wine barrel. You can see the band-mark from the galvanized metal barrel ring in the middle of the bridge.

Must be nice to live in a state with los of trees.   I Bought some acacia in Eugene, along with maple and mahogany that costs quite a bit more here in Texas.   Your bari came out very nice! Great job Thomas.

It's purty.  Sure like that wood grain and color.  What is that wood?
