Good Morning Guys.. :)

Here is a different theme Crown Cap for a Collector's TAD Cue.
I thought I'd try the Re-spliced look, with the Clover on the tips.
The "tough" part was thinking how to do the re-splice without resplicing. :eek:

I came up with using Machined Ebony .040" wide Inlay Strips, Ebony Point, Ebony Bridge to do the Black Point/Veneer work.

Even TAD's Joint Rings are a "Project" by themselves.
How much would you charge to make just the Joint Ring? :grin-square:
A lot of work..

We all Know Dave Barenbrugge is "The Lord of the Rings"..
But Tad did make nice Ring Work in his time .. :p

Thank you for viewing.. :)

TAD Feather Strips

1st. .... Thanks for posting Josh, Jimmy and Ken. :)

Machining inlay pieces for the next Cue Cap:
Ebony Boxes - Bordered "Blue/Yellow Feathers".
Ebony Half Razor Windows with Simulated Ivory Slotted Diamonds.
Not sure if got enough room/space for adding on the Clovers.
More inlays to make today. **

** I stopped watching the few remaining TV shows I hung-on to watch. Too much time wasted on watching the advertising.
LA Angles Baseball is the only thing I watch. :) Mike Trout, Otani, Pujols, Simmons, Flecher, Cole Calhoun, Justin Upton.. Really miss Tyler Skaggs. :(

Works of art that give great pleasure. My cues are fairly plain players cues with some rings only with beautiful woods, Bubinga & Brazilian Rosewood, and great hits by JoeyInCali.

Seeing your caps make me want to buy a fancy cue just so I can order some caps.

You are deservedly proud of the art you create.
