  • Butt timber colouring

    So my new Paduak and Ebony Mac cue is nearly ready. I'm itching to get my hands on it. I was planning on having a pool cue done in alternate splicing. So Ebony over Paduak instead of Paduak over Ebony.

    However I'm now thinking of a yellow or orange butt timber. However I'm at a loss at this point. Is it possible to have a timber dyed and still use it for a cue. Something like flame maple dyed yellow or orange sounds like it could work

    done see why not, they dye maple and sycamore for veneers so why not a splice block?

        is that a laminated shaft? Richard does them well I believe

        Yellow wood -have you look at Karelian/Massur birch
        I have this on my snooker and as my pool-cue mini butt (see avatar)
        goes to a lovely golden yellow

          It sure is. I've had plenty of Ash cues, it was time for a change. I'll be sure to check that timber now. I've tried searching for timbers used for cue making. I did find a website once but I can't find it now. It had all the popular timbers used and a few I'd not heard of

            Pau Amerillo/yellow heart is a yellow wood used in guitars. Otherwise maple can be dyed. You can get colourwood/dymondwood which is made up of thin laminated veneers in lots of colours which gives a striped effect. Colourwood is usually maple, dymondwood is birch I think impregnated with resin.
