The susuki bridge is complete, it ended up not being as heavy as I feared it would. I do have some leftover leaves, I might make a smaller piece out of them for the shop if I have time this week. :)

I'm working on a susuki bridge right now, something I've never made before. I've made two smaller susuki pieces, though I wasn't truly satisfied with either. it's going well so far, I hope to have it done by the end of next week at most, though with any luck it will be finished before that. The thing I'm most worried about is the weight, due to the extra wires, since each leaf is on it's own individual wire. It didn't matter quite so much on the smaller pieces, but it will likely be a significant problem for a bridge when i go to put it all together. I'm still thinking about a solution to that, maybe shorter wires would help, I'll have to try it and see.
