Thank you very much for your kind words. It means more than you'll ever know.
Please pardon my absence lately. I'm working full force and staying focused.
A little about this cue and construction.
I core everything but I still season the wood with small cuts and time. I'm a Vee point old school guy. I still cut the channel on a lathe between centers but I change the ratio on my 6 pointers to give it that full splice look without hiding all of the forearm. The handle on this cue is actually maple and I dye it black to look like Ebony. You can stain wood or dye it. For the Ebony look, I prefer to dye it.
Thank you very much.
