Banjo Bridge made from Black Jade

The owner of a local guitar shop wanted to fit a special banjo with some very special parts. He brought me a wooden banjo bridge and asked if it could be replicated in Black Jade. Sure, why not? As you can see, the Black Jade copy is not exactly the same. Cutting the angular steps into the Black Jade would have been problematic and really not necessary anyway. He decided to use a curved shape that would place the notches for the strings in the same places and make a more attractive piece. The various photos show the piece from different vantage points. I kind of hated to part with this one when I was done, but then, I don't own a banjo.

Below you will see photos of the sample he gave me to work from and also various angles of the banjo bridge we made for him in Black Jade.
