Thank you

I couldn't agree more, I know an older post but I love Sac's work.
Sac, thanks for showing off your work, always enjoy looking at it.


Thank you very much. This is still just a hobby for me, getting out in the garage and goofing around.

Do sneaky Pete's count?

I hope so.
This is pretty intimidating company with some extremely artistic cues!

My esthetic, if i have one, is "what would a cue look like if it was sold on the Mac truck, in 1928 - 1939?" I know mac did not start until late 1930's and AFAIK never made cues. But it would be great to get that between-wars phenolic-inconel-aluminum + good materials simple function thing down. This is the first trim ring for me. References the hex shape the blank is made from originally. Bloodwood into satinwood. Red phenolic joint, Delrin butt. Should have used acrylic for hex inserts in the ring - endgrain bloodwood just does not show well.

Shaft is from earlier cue - need to get more shaft wood. Waiting for joint pins to finish gabon blank.
6 point FS 59.5" long. 19.4 oz
Heavier than i prefer, 17.8 typically but feels balanced.
Been chafing at the bit to try it.

First attempt at points

This is first attempt at making points. I used an unconventional approach, making wedge shaped points and laminating the forearm.
The woods are walnut and coco plum.

Finished the curly ebony butt from post 346.
There's some problems and finish is not complete (Needs sanded, another coat or 2 to fill grain a little more). Right now i just want to try it out. :(

As previous, using shafts on hand for illustration. Need to make a batch for the new butts.

Have posted a couple cues in the past, and continue to make cues from time to time.
However, primary work in my shop is general woodworking and millwork.
Hope no one minds if i post this.

Recently completed table includes quite a few cue making methods such as FS 6 point legs & inlay techniques. It is also mostly made of wood people use for cues. Honduran rosewood into curly hard maple legs, ebony pinstriping, and inserts for the night sky, BE maple in in the part that represents and plain in the top, maple burl as the feature wood all over, and pau ferro for the dark borders around the case. There is also QS sycamore as the feature wood on the underneath panel. (not shown).

BTW, re: wedge - it's the old barn floor, not the legs. :)
sets perfectly flat at clients house. feet are adjustable, though.

This is my Domino Gina Cue Domino circa 1964 - 1966. That's Ernie's signature and his estimate of when he made it.

I made this cue of ash and ash burl using an ebony stain. The shaft is a 13 mm carbon fiber tube which is filled with a maple dowel for added stiffness and weight. It will be used for breaking and jumping.
