I am thinking about having a snake wood cue built and would appreciate seeing your snake wood cues for design ideas. Something about the snake wood and ebony look appeals to me.

Snake wood inlays maybe..... You most likely already know this but Snake wood is known for checking and cracking.

I sold this cue about 6 years ago.

Nice cue! Is that a Coker? I always liked his natural ringwork with no metal it them.

Snakewood is one of my favorites for exotic cue wood.

My Ariel Carmeli:

Don't ever put that cue up for sale because I don't want to have to explain to my wife why I bought it.

:thumbup:

Don't worry. It's extremely unlikely that this cue will ever be on the market, at least while I'm alive. I love the way it plays even more than the way it looks.

Thank you, yes that is a Coker.

I don't order cues with metal rings in them anymore.

This may be a dumb question, but what is the difference between snakewood and tigerwood? Without having each side by side I'm not sure I can tell the difference. Thanks.

The way it plays makes me doubt I'll ever want to play with anything else.
