Default Making a Pyramid Bridge

In this sequence Larry makes a pyramid bridge from scratch. Well, he didn't grow the Macassar Ebony, but you know what I mean.

The bridge blank is cut to size.

Surfaces are squared. The bottom surface is radiused to match the top radius.

A dime is used to mark the circles which will form the arch between the center and the pyramids.

The pyramids are marked.

The Grizzly is carefully fed some ebony.

And a pyramid bridge starts to take shape. She's rough yet, but coming into form.
