I got a couple of pictures from Pete Ohman showing the progress on my cue and thought I'd share. After trying for about a week to get all the bugs out of uploading, hosting, and linking a picture, and some help from SPetty, I think I have finally gotten it right. Pic 1 shows the forearm still in the lathe with the minor points already set and shows the v-grooves for the major points. Shown in pic 2 is the forearm of my new cue just about done. It's 8 ebony points with white/blue/black veneers into a cored Amboyna Burl front. When finished, it will have a few inlays in the points. If you guys are interested, I'll post future pictures as well on this thread showing progress through completion as the pictures become available. /ccboard/images/graemlins/cool.gif

Um, the pictures are right there in his post. If you have a slow connection, give it a minute for the pics to come up.

wigglin' isn't the word for it....I knew that it was gonna be slick lookin, but what I have seen so far really exceeds my expectations. I've been like a kid in a candy store since I got these pics /ccboard/images/graemlins/wink.gif

I am on a T3 line /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif

there seems to be a problem accessing the members.aol.com server where the pictures are stored

guess it is an issue of interprovider connectivity. As there is nothing we can do about it I will have to go to sleep without the pictures /ccboard/images/graemlins/frown.gif

Sounds good Woody...it's slated to be completed sometime in November, but it could be earlier. I'll let you know.

You should never, ever rush a full-splice cue. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

I play with and omen. One of the first one's Pete ever made. He makes one hell of a cuestick. I love mine and so does Woody whenever i'm running out on him with it.:) I recently contacted Pete down and Melbourne to see about refinishing my cue and making me a new shaft (since i didn't get my extra shaft back after my cuestick got stolen.) He is very reasonable and flexible with prices:)

That's going to be a truly spectacular cue. I love burl forearms. The veneers will really set off the points. You won't get bored looking at this one.

Depending on what I finally decide for a butt design on this one, I may end up having to auction off my house to pay for it all!!! /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif As it stands right now, it's slated for 4 ivory diamond inlays in the major points, and 4 ivory dots in the minors. I have a design that I really like for the butt, however it would involve 4 oval burl windows and 12 more ivory diamonds. That's still up in the air though. I'm already gonna have smoke coming off of my ATM card when I go to pay for it!!!!
