The main part of veena is the bridge. Wood is carved in the shape of bridge. Aarak (lacquer) is melted and applied on the wooden bridge on which a flat bar of brass is fixed. Holes are drilled on either of the bridges leg. Saw powder and adhesive are put in the holes and a small piece wood is fixed in the whole. The wooden bridge is fixed in the middle of the resonator. A slightly curved brass bar is fixed adjacent to the bridge, which gives the veena its characteristic sound. The strings are fixed to the veena, passing over these brass bars.
