The ends still need polishing — that’ll happen with the stick assembled, so the joint is smooth to the touch.
But the wood is about where it needs to be. Once it dries thoroughly I’ll be able to see where it’s at. Maybe apply more color. Maybe it’s ready for a higher grit sanding. Once the owner says the color’s right, Caribbean Stick gets two deep coats of epoxy. That’ll cure 2 days, then after sanding to see “where it’s at,” again, and either apply more epoxy or CA glue for the finish.
Lotta “seeing where it’s at,” in custom cue work. But the last thing I want is for the owner to receive her stick and say, “I wish it was more…”
My guess: after the epoxy goes on we’ll be able to see the blue looking like deep and ripply water.

I absolutely love it and the color is perfect! Thank you!
