How can you ever let something so nice go???

Ralf for many years Lucky bought up all of Dave's stuff and it went to Japan, I don't believe that many people in the US know the quality of Dave's work. IMO he is one of the top 10 makers today, his construction and attention to detail is second to none and the playability of his cues is right where I like it.
Kinda like Nick I am in a small group of guys who is lucky enough to get some cues from top guys and Dave is on my short list of people I'll work with.
You don't run across Dave's work on the secondary market very often, but if you do I suggest to all that you give it a try, you will not be let down.

He also proves that you don't need inlays to make a fancy cue, the wood and the rings are the star. I am sure you've seen Tommy's hickory burl set.

Hi Jim,
You are right, his Cues don't need Inlays and I know a lot of Dave's work.
I will get mine next year after a very long waiting period :mrgreen:

This is how to do justice in showcasing a cue! Great set of pictures! It's like looking at the cue in person.

My compliments to the photographer...but not sure if it's Jim...

Allan -> WOW!

Thank You Sir, these were my best pics yet, if I could duplicate I'd have 50 more cues up in this section. Did you look at the Brugge group shots? I think those came a bit better, it was the same shoot.
It's very hard (for me) to get pictures this clear, wish I knew WTF I was doing.
Thanks for the compliment!

Jim <---Had great subject matter

I've checked the brugge batch and the pictures are superb but this set is the best in my eyes because of the quality and intricate details of the cue. What DSLR do you use and what lens (I bet it's a macro lens)? I might as well copy this format to take pictures of cues because the presentation is top notch!

Actually it was a normal lens(18-55), I shoot with a Canon 70D, I took them outside on a great overcast day. I didn't use any special settings, it was all dumb luck. I am going to post another cue up soon and you will quickly see that my results are not something I have been able to replicate.

An 18-55mm only? Nice! The best approach on the not to lose the sharpness is to increase the aperture around F6-7. Since you are taking pictures using ambient light, the results would be the same. DSLR's nowadays are so cheap (and easy to use), taking best quality pictures of cues should not be an excuse anymore. The line "pictures doesn't give justice" should be a thing of the past.

Jamie you'd need to define a few things and talk with someone smarter then I on this one.

But I believe Dave is one of the few guys who uses 1 piece veneers, I believe Dennis also does this.

I am unclear as to how the process goes or when the cuts are made, it might be a thin line as to the definition of the terms.

I can tell you one thing I have fallen in love with Dave's work, his attention to detail is up there with the best. I feel he is underrated (if possible) and I know his rings garner a lot of attention but the rest of his work is tight as hell and I just acquired a few more that I plan to tease in Murray's thread and then showcase here tonight. I have Dave on a short list of guy's whos cues I will buy now.

Jim <----Needs time to take some pics
