Here are some pictures for you piperman. I'm getting into this cue building in a big way. I'm getting ready for my first release of 30 cues and I already have a waiting list for my jump cue.These are solid curly maple or purple heart with long inlays covering 24" in length. These cues are ready for final sand and finish. All of the inlays are either gabon ebony (black), curly maple, purple heart, cocobolo, turquoise, abolone, or imitation ivory.Here's some exotics. From left to right. curly hard maple gabon ebony mun ebony brazillian tulipwood koa buck eye burl bastogne black walnut zircote indian rosewood macassar ebony black and white ebony cocoboloThis is one of my racks where I process exotics into blanks used to make cues from.This is a pocketing process to prepare for receiving inlays.Here I'm cutting inlays. These are small 1" long inlays.More pockets and inlays. The wood is Amboyna Burl with purple heart and malachite inlays.4.3 oz. jump cue, darting method, made of cocobolo and laminated maple. This is my prototype that my final design was based on. The cue is not clear coated or finished.The ring work at the joint consists of 30 brass dots 0.031" in diameter set in double black linen phenolic.The joint is a Uniloc quick release aluminum pin and brass insert.The cue is 41" long making this jump cue legal to use in tournament.The tip is 13 mm in diameter made of black G10. G10 is a glass reinforced resin that was developed by NASA. The ferrule is also made of G10 but is green in color.
