Allene wrote me asking about making her an all curly maple cue and I was really into her design. This simple design becomes something really special when paired with some highly figured hard curly maple. This type of hard maple is not super abundant so I was delighted to have some suitable for her build. The chatoyance (striking three-dimensional appearance) of this cue is outstanding hence the wonder cue title. I have been build cues since 1995 and this was some of the best curly maple I have ever used.
