Another Cue maker who made Full Spliced blanks both with and without Veneered points was Paul Huebler. Every Huebler sneaky Pete and all of the High end House cues Paul sold were made completely in his shop. In addition all of his cues that were made in his Custom shop were also Full Spliced to my knowledge.

Take care

Where's Tate when you need him? At first that looks like Gina's method with maybe deeper channels to receive the points, but for sure, that last pic looks like a spliced construction to me.

Thanks

Boars are cored then cut in points
Spliced is when the handle is cut into the forearm

Think Huebler and Meucci .
I apologize for offending anyone. Meucci in the same sentence with Huebler is not right.

that is not considered spliced. there is no splice, that is a block of wood routed into a dowell . hence a inlay

Unfortunately, the OP didn't specify "full-splice," "short splice," or otherwise. I think this is a source of some confusion. From the cuemakers listed as having built "spliced" cues, I took it to mean "short splice" vs. "inlaid."

Short-spliced cues have a 90 degree (or so) V groove milled/routed into them to accept the point stock. Black Boar cuts a V-groove slot into a forearm and glues points into the butt when it is 30" or so long rather than a 12"-14" long forearm. These are not flat-bottomed points.

If the BB forearm were chopped at the base of the points it would be tough to tell the difference looking at the bottom of the points. The tips come to sharp points just like other short-spliced cues. Granted, the ivory points within the ebony/cocobolo are often inlaid, but that's a decorative feature.

From http://www.blackboarcustomcues.com/
The points are the backbone of a Black Boar cue; there are no shortcuts here. Each set of points is precision-milled and fitted to the deep-knifed pockets within the cue; this process is repeated in the 6 and 8-point cues. Some cues boast as many as 24 knifed-in points to create the veneer effect - this is very time consuming but becomes evident in the cue's balance and hit.

Points should play two very important roles in the design and manufacturing of a cue. First, points should help to stabilize the forearm. Second, they should add progressive weight towards the rear of the cue. With the advent of the 6-point cues Tony fell in love with the beautiful transition from Bird's Eye to all Ebony. This feature created such an increase in quality that Black Boar would never look back on any other manufacturing technique.


I've attached photos of the rough points stock before it is trued up and glued into the cue.

Andy Gilbert definitely does make his one spliced cues, I know that he has made half and full spliced cues.
