Today I glued my bridge on a tenor uke
I used 2 clamps with a caul both inside & out.
I used some 2 sided tape on the inside caul in order to keep in place white I positioned the clamps.
Too clever!
I cannot remove the inside caul which is approx. 3/4" x 3/4" x 3"
I made a L-shaped block & tried to knock it with a hammer, didn't work
I'm wondering about using some kind of solvent though it will not be easy applying it where I need it.
please help!

You probably should still remove any adhesive residue.

You are lucky it came off. I did a similar thing 20 years ago under the bridge extension. The block is still there. At least it has no acoustic effect.
