New Zealand Kauri and Arizona ironwood cue . . .

Sep 14, 2022,18:16 PM
 

. . . almost ready for action.

Ironwood handle, . . .





. . . Kauri forearm and butt.









Ferrule being glued to . . .





. . . a walnut shaft.  This cue should be as good a player as a looker.


Who says "it's the Indian, not the arrow"?











Called shots, all.  I've recently worked out a called break shot . . .


. . . where the head ball goes into the side.

I’m sure you will make good use of it 🤩

Hello dear Art!! I know nothing about cues but I know well…

… how to appreciate an extraordinary artisan work and specially love the warmth, texture and colors of wood. So I can say your new cue is a fantastic piece and I’m sure you’ll be making your awesome magic at the pool table with it soon. I always enjoy you... 

Thirteen at the moment excluding the Kauri / ironwood cue that's almost done . . .

. . . and the Honduran rosewood burl / Makore cue on which construction has just started. That count doesn't include those I've had made for friends (including pplater) or gifted; the total count of cues I've had made is well over twenty.

Wow, impressive!

Actually fourteen, Nicolas - forgot about one back at the shop . . .

. . . awaiting restoration.

Even better!

Here's another called break . . .

. . . for good measure. Made three consecutively in a practice session once.

Those are some....

serious SkillZ!! The cue, predictably, looks gorgeous. This is just another topic I could learn heaps about from speaking to you amigo .... Looking forward to seeing it in person! Cheers, Filip

Slept thru geometry class . . .

. . . so if I can make this shot now . . . . . . anyone can. With enough practice, of course. 😌

Ball abuse.

That’s what I call it.

Technically? When the black one . . .

. . . drops. ...  

So…

 
 By: TheMadDruid : September 15th, 2022-20:52
the white ball drops the black ball

It is a beautiful cue, by the way.

Both Kauri and ironwood are scarce timbers . . .

 
 By: Dr No : September 15th, 2022-21:01
. . . so having both in a cue is probably unheard of 'til now.

Very tactful.

Excellent use of discretion.
