For those of us who are not cue makers, can some one please educate us and tell us what we are looking at in all of those pictures?

Thanks in advance.


Hi Rich
You are looking at wood puzzles that when glued all together make up a section of the cue.

Here are a series of pics from when I built a forearm that ended up in a cue for Ross. Ebony into ebony with flame veneers.

The first shows the individual parts. From the top of the pic, they are:

- my beverage :mrgreen:
- my home-made (you'll see a trend here) jig for for gluing the veneers into a 90 degree V shape, with one ebony point sitting in the veneer V
- the other three veneer V's
- a blown out ebony blank - blew out because I tried to cut too deep on all four points :oops:
- the good ebony blank with V grooves cut
- the remaining three ebony points

The second pic shows a close-up of the ebony point sitting in the veneer V.

These show the veneer V's and points glued into the V-grooves and wrapped with surgical tubing as a clamp.

And these show the forearm after the excess parts of the points and veneers have been trimmed off and tapered round.

This one came out well. You should see the reject drawer full of crap that I kept to remind me how hard this is (for me).

This is such a great learning experience for someone who is cue construction challenged like myself. I know enough to be dangerous. Great series of threads and I look forward to seeing more installments.

Nothing new here :roll:



I wasn't being a smart ass, I was trying to beat Rich to his question. Many people here know what they are looking at, but the purpose here is to explain the process, not just show the pics and assume people know that the glued up veneers get seated in the V grooves. ScootR did a little better job, but I think still someone needs to splain it a bit better for those who have never seen this aspect of the construction.

And Dave if you ever want Eddie to learn how to make a cue with points you are going to have to give him a bit more.

Jim <---Knows some cuemakers are learning from this as well as the guys who don't make that claim

Hi Scott,

have you done this veneer V´s with the ATLAS supply thing mentioned in the veneer thread :?:
Because if I got it right, this is the method without the glueline - correct :?:

Hope somebody can help the "stupid european" again :mrgreen:

Eric(h),
I plan to get into the details of how the different methods of how veneers are installed in a later segment(s). My intent for this segment was just to show the basics of how short spices are done. I was in a hurry when I made my post and did not make that clear.

Sorry Jim
Thru my discussions with Murray, I wasn't aware that we were doing instructional step by step threads. I know some guys who have a hard time selling cues but they sell DVD's,

You are correct Mike. In the very first segment I wanted to make it clear that I did not expect anyone to give up any secrets or make this a instructional video. The point of these threads is to help people understand the basics of how their cue is put together and some of the components used. So far I think it is going well.

I'll have my pictures and write up done tonight or in the morning.
