i know that most snooker cues are made of ash wood and maple wood, and i saw ash wood more commonly. but i never saw a pool cue is made of ash wood. why?
i want to learn more detail about cue making.about the wood characters. is there anyone has some resources. thank you!

On the forum at AZBilliards, they have a section called, "Ask The Cuemaker", and a number of cue makers answer questions just like this one. If you have questions about cue making, that may be the best place to go.
You can also check their archives, as they may have already answered a lot of your questions.
