This one is very special for me because it is the fanciest design that I have worked with a cue maker on. Jim really took what I came up with and what zeeder photoshopped for me, and executed it brilliantly. It is scary how good Jim is.

Here are some images of the progression of this cue from design to completion.

- First is the original CAD that I did for the inlays.
- Next is the photoshopped sleeve (all shopped pics are courtesy of zeeder).
- After Jim sent a picture of the forearm blank, we played around with inlays for the points. Pic 3 was the original. At Jim's suggestion, we went with pic 4.
- Put them together and you get the full look in pic 5.

More in the next post......

Phase two of the cue project was to add rings at all positions and see how that looked. Picture one.

Jim played around with dimensions on the "S" and "broken diamond" inlays and ended up at the second picture of the sleeve and with the point inlays as shown in the third pic.

Jim was easy and great to work with. I can't recommend him highly enough.

That cue is sweet. It is a combination of great design and great execution.

Scooter that swooshy slash thing is sweet. Inlay on inlay. Excellent execution.

Thanks, John. They turned out better than I imagined. The abalone pieces give it a 3D look in person. Jim said they were a pain to work with, being such small slivers.

One thing I forgot to mention above, and I think speaks volumes about Jim. The original design was a cocobolo forearm. I met Jim at VF in 2006 and he told me he wasn't happy with the way the forearm came out and wanted to make another. We switched to the amboyna burl you see here, he trashed the other one and he still made the deadline to complete the cue.
