Blackplate cues will be made in very limited numbers as the shafts for these cues will be selected from the top 1% of shafts available, the ash will be selected for its very straight and evenly spaced grain points and the maple for its unblemished fault free grain both much desired by many players and cue collectors worldwide.

Greenplate cues will be made using the straightest grained ash and maple. They will be available from stock in one piece, centre jointed and various butt jointed versions and in a wide range of different designs and specifications.

 

The shafts on this range are machine turned to an oversized taper and left for a period of time to ensure straightness and stability, they are then hand planed to near finished size before the butt is hand spliced. The cues are then hand planed, hand sanded and hand finished to final size.
