TAD Kohara Clover Points - 09-05-2019, 10:45 AM

Good Morning Guys..

Here is a different theme Crown Cap for a Collector's TAD Cue.
I thought I'd try the Re-spliced look, with the Clover on the tips.
The "tough" part was thinking how to do the re-splice without resplicing.

I came up with using Machined Ebony .040" wide Inlay Strips, Ebony Point, Ebony Bridge to do the Black Point/Veneer work.

Even TAD's Joint Rings are a "Project" by themselves.
How much would you charge to make just the Joint Ring?
A lot of work..

We all Know Dave Barenbrugge is "The Lord of the Rings"..
But Tad did make nice Ring Work in his time ..

Thank you for viewing..

Alton

I always wanted a set of caps from you, Alton. I hope you're well.

TAD Feather Strips - 09-10-2019, 10:02 AM

1st. .... Thanks for posting Josh, Jimmy and Ken.

Machining inlay pieces for the next Cue Cap:
Ebony Boxes - Bordered "Blue/Yellow Feathers".
Ebony Half Razor Windows with Simulated Ivory Slotted Diamonds.
Not sure if got enough room/space for adding on the Clovers.
More inlays to make today. **



** I stopped watching the few remaining TV shows I hung-on to watch. Too much time wasted on watching the advertising.
LA Angles Baseball is the only thing I watch. Mike Trout, Otani, Pujols, Simmons, Flecher, Cole Calhoun, Justin Upton.. Really miss Tyler Skaggs.

As usual you capture the very essence of the cue, your work is amazing.

Works of art that give great pleasure. My cues are fairly plain players cues with some rings only with beautiful woods, Bubinga & Brazilian Rosewood, and great hits by JoeyInCali.

Seeing your caps make me want to buy a fancy cue just so I can order some caps.

You are deservedly proud of the art you create.
