I was responding to: The next construction technique used is the Short Splice. In this technique the butt of a cue is constructed using a forearm that is fully spliced and then doweled to another piece of wood under the cues wrap, which in turn is doweled to the wood or materials used in the construction in the lower portion of the cue below the wrap."
Oddly, after all those pictures, someone STILL can't recognize a full splice cue.
Like I said, if I could build a full splice, why on earth would I cut it in half and use an A joint and lose the prestige of having the splice. It would double my work load when I could just cut the grooves and glue in 4 separate pieces of wood and be done for a product that would look and perform the same as a full splice cut in 2? That's why I don't even like the name 'short splice'. It isn't splicing. It's joinery.
