Turned from ash and purpleheart. 5-1/2" Dia. x 3-7/8" High (14 cm x 9.7 cm). The center section is built from staves tapered and beveled like barrel staves. I’ve been putting off doing this type of construction for some time but finally made a jig up to do it safely and accurately. After finish sanding I rubbed some black paint over the ash, which is open grained, and then wiped it off the surface leaving the grain black. Snooker cues are generally made of ash and given that treatment so I thought I’d give it a shot myself.
