    I have set it up but haven't started using it but I'm hoping it will prove highly useful.

    "I made the first Mahl Bridge because I wanted control when I painted delicate shapes (such as ship's masts and ship's rigging) and exacting architectural shapes. I wanted support for my hand and a guide for my brushes. The Mahl Bridge provides both. I hope you also enjoy the benefits of this handcrafted tool."
