Birdseye maple cue - 03-02-2020, 06:41 PM

So if a cue was made from an 18Ē piece of maple. Birdseye or curly. Was made into a cue. Plain maple handle with a linen wrap. Would it have to be cored or a weight bolt to keep it around 19oz?

Definitely core it for stability.
Spread any added weight in all 3 places for the balance.
Without the woods in my possession you may be able to get away with only doing 2 places.

Ok. I was kinda thinking that. They are both square now but the weight differences is about 2 ounces. I thought maple was pretty good and didnít need to be cored. Figuring most the time makers core something itís with maple. So I figured it doesnít move as much.

Core it because itís figured wood, grain structure not as sound as plain straight grained maple.

Over my short span of handling cues I guess it's about 50-50 on BE cues that I've handled that have moved off center. Maaaaybe the guess a bit on the high side but I've concluded the majority, if any that had moved, had not been cored. Some I was indecisive on but based on the history of the builder I was guessing no.
Some worse than others but any off center moving is not a good program for long term stability. Just because you core doesn't ensure absolute non-movement but I like dealing with better odds and quality coring does that for me.
Aligning the end grain of the core with the face grain of the host is a good insurance program in mine and in my customers book.

Yes it will need either a wrap joint weight screw, rear weight bolt or coring with heavier wood.
