Closing in

Carving the bridge comes near the end of the build, and is a pleasure--careful work with super sharp tools, but not as stressful as some of the other steps, and an opportunity to leave "fingerprints"...traces of the hand-building process. 

I will leave the subtle facets created by the carving gouge here on the back of the tie block:

while the other surfaces will be comparatively sleek.
