In this segment I'm going to show how re-cut points are done. This forearm is birds eye maple with six re-cut points, three high and three low, of ebony, holly and bloodwood. The first step is to prepare the point stock. I machined them square (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SysEw0C2L5g) and then cut them in a tapering jig so that I get two points from each square.

Image
Image

Then I cut the three long points.

Image

And glue in the ebony which is the first wood to go in.

Image
Image

And here it is turned round.

Image

Then it is time to cut the short points.

Image

Once the ebony is glued in and turned round it looks like this. I guess I could quit and call it a Black Boar tribute but Jimmy would probably ban me.

Image

Now it is time to put it back in the mill and "re-cut" the ebony so that I can glue in the holly points.

Image
Image

Here is the forearm with the holly glued in and turned round. I skipped some of the steps because it is exactly the same process for each color wood.

Image

Now it goes back into the mill again so the holly can get re-cut for the bloodwood points.

Image

Then the long points can be glued in and turned round.

Image
Image

Now it is back to the mill for the last time. The short points are cut and the last three bloodwood points can be glued in.

Sorry it took so long to get this segment going. Hopefully future segments won't take so long.

A real old fashion approach:
On a lathe between centers, No DRO just a vernier. Just a thought on the people selling fixtures for doing this and other things in Cue making, It may help the guy who wants to speed up his ability for doing certain things quicker and maybe easier but it also stops the individual from learning thru experimentation. I'm not really sure that's a good thing. But I guess that's what being a forum Cue maker has come too. You don't have to learn anything, just ask, and someone right or wrong will tell you what you should do and believe in.
