Bridge, saddle and nut

I have made the bridge by carving a piece of tulipwood, and the saddle with ebony. The strings go directly through the bridge and the soundboard with a simple knot to hold them underneath.
The nut is made of cocobolo. The notches for the strings, of various thicknesses, are made with tiny round files: they're just welding tip cleaners that you can buy at the hardware store--quite economical and they do the job.
