What random stuff have you used for a bridge?

Working on a dog bowl resonator at the moment and am struggling to find a suitable bridge. A couple of hardware store trips and looks around the fixings, drawer handles, plumbing sections have turned up nothing. In the past I've used bolts, hardwood, corner braces, but need to attach this differently. I'm not looking for advice so much but just wondering: what random, weird, interesting stuff have you used for a bridge?Thanks!See More
