Honduras Rosewood Burl

Page 2


I decided to go with a cored ebony handle.  Black leather is nice but this cue will be a tribute to wood - so ebony, it will be.  To further control weight, I'm using a threaded phenolic pin to join both pieces.

You can see the maple cores have already been threaded for the phenolic pin.  The register diameters are also grooved for glue retention. Note that the glue grooves on the cores are easily visible around the periphery of the cores - 4 grooves on the forearm & 3 on the handle.  Appropriately, they are completely filled with glue.  The combination of close threads and accurate registers will align & secure the components for a solid hitting cue.
