Making a rosewood Bridge...and looking at reducing mass by hollowing out!!

Hi All
....new to this forum...perhaps this question has been addressed in earlier years....but I'm not sure how to find the conversations!
Have a nice piece of very old Brazillian rosewood that was given to me by Steve Phillips, a great maker (of Martin/Gibson style) guitars, and a great player in general. (Notting HillBillies et al.)

Does the hollowing out have to be done with precision...as in machining....or can a more approximate hand/eye process be used?

I'd love to find some decent views of the process....if there are any out there please??

Presume that the idea is to leave the bridge structurally sound, while removing as much 'unseen' material as possible......am I on the right track?
