Carving notches…

The first job I did with my early Christmas present was to carve the notches on the Style-X bass bridge. Having done this, the bridge pins were fitted, the tops filed flat, then the notches were varnished, and the tops of the pins lacquered.

Varnished soundboard…

Underside of the Style-X soundboard has been varnished – next job is to glue the board into the case. The wooden buttons in the picture are there to spread the load from the screws helping to hold the bridges onto the board.

Soundboard day…

The new soundboard arrives at 12 noon! The case is all prepared – the bracings have been cleaned and lacquered, the slips (the area that the soundboard is glued to) cleaned, and the new polyester wrapped up for protection during the work.

Todays work will mainly involve fitting the board to the case – tomorrow the bridges (three of them on this piano) will be positioned, bearing set etc. Last job of the day will be varnishing the underside of the board ready for it to be glued into the case the next day.
