This look pretty sweet, who are you and how did you find the knowledge to create such pretty splices?

Jim<——— loving the color combos

I appreciate the feedback jimbo. My name is Shelby Williams and I'm based out of Sherman Texas. Long story short, Larry Vigus took me under his wing when I first ventured into cue building two years ago. I became interested in traditional full splices about a year ago and Larry introduced me to John Nemec. I spent a day at his shop in Dallas learning the fundamentals. It's taken a while to adapt that knowledge using the machinery I have on hand. These are my first attempts with butterflies and I wasn't sure they were going to turn out.

Well they turned out great!! I’m super impressed with the results with the relatively short time you’ve been researching and learning. Are you a woodworker by trade? Keep up the good work, study some of Paul Fanelli”s work and continue your journey. Keep posting please and Godspeed

Jim<—— impressed even if it were beginners luck ;-)

Thank you, definitely not a wood worker of any degree before I started making cues. Fanelli's work is phenomenal, it just hurts my head trying to dissect some of his designs.

My test piece for my 360s. I know the handle length is quite long but I think I'll get it right my 2nd go. Image
