The butterfly cue.......... - 06-16-2018, 10:04 AM

Not only pleasing to the eye but most looking at it have no idea of the extreme difficulty and numerous setup applications to execute this design of butterfly cue.
Look close at the point veneer and the coinciding butterfly veneer and you'll notice that each are applied in layers that are connected to each other. This not an everyday run of the mill easy cue design.
Nice work Eric.

Thank you for noticing. I honestly didn't expect anybody to catch on to it.

Iíve been a fan of the work Eric does since the first time I seen one of his cues. And, it seem he is only getting better at his craft, the woods are as only a true wood junky would have, but the craftsmanship is getting into the ďepicĒ levels. I really love seeing new and exciting designs and execution.
Eric is on my very short list of makers I would like a cue from. Iím by no means a huge collector, currently only have five cues, and I play with all of them. When it comes to cues Iíve been burned a few times, and now I donít care if a makers cues play like the hand of god, I will only give my money to someone who is passionate and has great business ethics. I have a friend who makes a pretty sporty cue and plan on getting cues from him until the day comes I canít.
But since seeing the cue Eric made for Rogan (one of the sickest pieces of Coco Iíve ever seen) and all the others on this forum and reading how he handles customers, I would love to work with him on a cue! One day maybe.

Anyways... congrats on some beautiful cues!
Mr. Crisp, really dig the cues!

So to do that you had to alternate between V and butterfly splice recuts, right? Cool touch and very subtle. The precision required to execute that seems pretty intense.

Yes, that's basically it. It began with a 13" maple forearm, and kept growing. It's all re-cut, alternating between flies and v-groove points. Each layer adds some length. The trick was figuring out how to even out the length between the front and butt so it had a visual balance, no noticeable discrepancy in length between front and back. What I didn't anticipate was the flexing a vibration I encountered while trying to cut splices in the middle of the cue. It meant making a few jigs to stabilize and support the piece so I could accurately cut the splices. It was essential to keeping everything even. Keep in mind I would cut four splices at a time, whether points or flies, and then remove the entire piece from the jig. I'd then glue the spliced pieces on, let cure, recenter, and taper cut them flush. I'd repeat the process over & over until the cue was complete. At any step it could have went south, tweaked, chipped, etc. and the cue would have been a waste.

It is by far and above the most difficult build I have ever attempted. In the end it ultimately looks kinda like a Brunswick 360, which was the goal. It was a lot of work and a real puzzle getting everything to line up even and correct, all for a quite subtle effect. I knew folks would think it looks cool, but honestly didn't expect anybody to notice the intricacies. Makes it all worth it
