Azfelia Burl on Birds Eye Sugar Gum (Still Choosing a Wrap) - 04-06-2008, 05:02 PM

Didn't post this one before finishing because it looked kind of boring without finish on it. The pictures still don't do any justice to the figure in both pieces of wood.

Still trying to decide on the wrap. I like the first one shown, but my wife said she doesn't like it (what does she know anyway, she's married to me). Another option would be the Black Lizard like in the last photo. I haven't cut the skin yet, so just laid the entire thing over the cue. Or possibly smooth black Kangaroo or some Black Ostrich Skin which I should have in tomorrow.

Thanks for looking...

The wraps take away from the cue.

I would recommend a black or black with some color linen wrap.

But thats me.

Good luck.

Nice cue Tony. I think plain leather, either in the right brown or black would be best.

Tony

You know me and how I like some contrast especially with the wrap. Lay the all white leather wrap that I left at your house on the cue and see how that looks. If it doesn't look good then I would say to go with the smooth black.

Well, it seems like your wife has good taste in ALMOST all her choices, you perhaps being the exception.... It seems like everyone (including me) thinks the white is out of place on this cue. I think any black would be a good choice and as some suggested brown might also be nice although I would need to see it laid out.

Regardless of the wrap, it's a beautiful cue.....congrats.

It's one of the three I'm taking with me. I think I originally said I had four or 5. One I wasn't happy with, so I trashed it. If there was a fifth, it's not finished. I only need to take two with me, so this one I could get rid of this week before I go. I guess we're not meeting up Thursday. My wife seems to have another late meeting. Hmm, maybe I'd better have her followed. It's the second Thursday in a month she's coming home late.
