Got picked up today. This one is gone.

That's some sweet and creamy eyes in that wood.

Just curious as to why you used purpleheart under the cork?

Man, I'd love to have some curly with that much figure!

Beautiful cues, Joey.

Gorgeous as ever!

Bloodwood scares me for a core, though. I've used a fair amount for millwork. Unlike most wood i have not been able to just read the grain and know for sure which piece is going to twist and curl, and which with stay dead straight. There's a 2 x 10 x 8 or 10 ft i want to make some butts out of, but have not worked up the courage (or time).

Most of it does not float.
It smells good. (to me)

Cut some pieces and turn them round .
You can tell the direction better when they are round.
Look at the faces of the dowels and follow the grain.

What would be the difference if you reversed it?

Purpleheart forearm and butt sleeve with a maple handle?

If you got the weight and balance the same, how would the "hit" change? Harder? Softer?

All things being equal, it will hit harder.
A full size pplheart forearm with a good maple handle hits pretty hard.
A lower pitch sounding shafts match them better for someone who does not a really pingy hit.
