Here is a recent cue heading to Singapore. The customer (Eddie Chin) wanted a Hoppe inspired design. I used curly maple for the front and purpleheart for the points and butt piece.
The linen wrap was white with light green speck to give it that Cortland cord look. The butt piece or back featured a nice dark colored piece of purpleheart and an ivory ring sandwiched between two thin nickel silver rings.
