Show me some amboyna

Hey guys,

Was wondering if anyone has a cue with amboyna burl points into a maple forearm. I've seen a couple around recently but figured there had to be more. I have a few ideas floating around for such a cue I want built, but I'd like to see some veneer colors for ideas first.

Thanks,
Krishna

This is a James White I owned a few years ago. The bluish-grey veneers were an interesting match to the amboyna.

Thats very pretty Scott. I was thinking of some green and orange veneers: maybe like white, double green, orange, dark brown. Perhaps white, orange, double green, dark brown, who knows.

That Murrell is the reason I thought green veneers would look good with Amboyna, thanks for sharing.

Any others out there?

I still can't decide if I want to go with natural, green, orange, green, dark brown/black veneers (kind of like this hercek that Steve has with a Burton Spain blank: http://forums.azbilliards.com/showthread.php?t=192530&highlight=steve+hercek+spain). I think that set of veneers would work very well with a rich brown wood for the points. Maybe if four veneers natural, green, orange black vs natural, green, blue, black. Any suggestions?

What do you think of these pieces? I've had some ideas floating around that will hopefully become a cue in a short period of time
