Bruce, basicly a love of the game thing. One of my best friends that taught me much of what I know commands over 10K per cue. I am semi retired so I make when I want. I use a lot of Birdseye Maple, Ebony, Tulip Wood, Thaya Burl, Cocabola.
The cue butt itself as far as wood consists of a forearm, handle and butt sleeve. It is cut 29 1/2 inches long and tapers from .835 to 1.236

Points in the forearm are cut 91 degrees in 4, 6 or 8 points. Veeners are put in and then other woods and turned round again. As I get older I am starting to consider doing more Butterfly points. The sanded finish has a UV Aliphatic Urethane car finish which is sanded and buffed to a high gloss.

Nice work Tom, And how many computer lspinners do you have? I have a friend in Columbus In. who has a really nice cue making shop. I make cue stick cases.... not that many , but I sell a few. The last one I made held two butts and four shafts. I`ll try to get some pictures up as soon as I learn how to communicate with this PC. Rick
