    • I've got a 57" 17.5 oz beech shafted one piece with a 9mm brass ferrule, mini butt included for sale, would make a great pool cue IMO

      same design as this one that I have for sale on ebay, same price 150 delivered.

        This wood looks a lot like maple.

          It is a lot like maple, with no gain but has arrows, as the cue I use myself is beech as well.
          For that one you've always wanted...

            Better than maple IMO, stiffer, so a slim tapered cue can be made that isn't whippy which makes it perfect for UK 8 ball.

              The arrows might be too faint to notice.

                They are not as my playing cue is beech and they do show up but don't use them to aim, so don't bother me either way.
                Playing a match tonight and will post a pic.

                    Here is a pic of them from my cue.
                    Lot clearer when on the cue.

                    • Because the grain in beech isn't soft like it is with ash there's no grain filler used so it's not enhanced.

                            • Hi.

                              I've just started making cues but had this to refurb.

                              Credit to Andy Hunter for the info.

                              "Dawson billiard champion in 1889 1890 1901 & 1903.In March 27th 1893 he made the 698 break and the 613 in September in 1890 so this cue would be after 1893 this is a early one so between 1893 1900.Dawson was born December 20th 1866 in Huddersfield ."

                              few before and after photos attached.
