Hand made process
Every stage is critical to make a good custom snooker cue
Shafts are firstly selected by eye, to make sure the grain pattern is of the correct quality and straightness, the bend shaft will throw away. and then checked by hand for test and feel the quality of the shafts
Using a plane, the shaft is skilfully tapered down to size
This is done slowly, in stages so that the natural stresses in the wood have time to settle
After the shaft has gone through the tapering process, the exact splice pattern is measured out with engineering precision so that the points are very accurate and even
The butt wood gets selected strictly from our dry kiln.
Only the best quality is selected, and the rest throw away.
The butt wood is skilfully cut to suit it's individual grain pattern
In the later stages, the cues are sanded down to a finish by hand
This is very time consuming and labour intensive, but it is the only way to get the quality of finish necessary
The final sizes of a cue are checked and accurately measured during the final sanding process
Joint work is done on a lathe. It should be straightforward but it isn't!
It is very difficult to get both the shaft and butt aligned correctly
Any mistakes mean the grain will not match up. No mistakes allowed here...
Hand fish the cue for five time
Making a good cue is all hand made work....
It takes 50 days, so why our cue value for the money . thanks
