Skip Weston Custom Pool Cue- Unique 8 Point Design

Skip Weston is a unique cuemaker in that instead of mitering his point veneers, they are made from solid pieces of wood. As a result of this construction process, there is no seem going up the middle of the points. Great cue makers around the world have perfected the mitering process and seems on their cues are almost invisible. However, the majority of veneered cues in the world have very visible seems. Weston's process ensures very sharp points that have clarity and consistency of color. This example of Weston's work is a unique 8 point design with four high points and four low points. The forearm is a piece of nicely figured birdseye maple. The high points are ebony with four veneers colored maple, red, orange, and black. The short points are Purple Heart with no veneers. The joint is black phenolic with a 3/8"-10 pin (flat face) and decorative rings on the butt side and on the shafts. The wrap is textured black leather and the butt section is ebony with an ivory butt cap.
