Some sticks seem stunning because of what you do with them. The truth is, that’s you, not the stick. You know what you’re doing and could take the table shooting with a chalked-up broom handle.
But lay a Character Cue on the felt while you’re racking and the shooter who’s won the last fifteen games is going to fear the next.
That’s the stick. That ain’t you.
A stick with game always speaks English.
A stick with game always has a seven-rail solution brewing.
A stick with game quivers in the bag like a sleeping wolf, dreaming of the kill.
Live or die, a game stick is a fighter.
It doesn’t quit.
It says, I like your bruises and bad mood. I’m in one too. Let’s kick ass.
Get yourself a game stick.
Get a Character Cue.

This stick is reserved for my loyal reader and promoter, Dennis W. He’s been a big fan of my work for a long time and he wanted Purpble Object Ball Eater, Stick 1, made of purple ash. I have enough for one more purple stick out of ash, and if he likes this one, it’s his. If not, the stick’ll be up for grabs. In the meantime if you want a purple one let me know. I have a little maple and a little birch with a cool speckled pattern I’m dying to see in a stick.

This stick is under construction with an expected completion date in early August 2022.
As work is accomplished I’ll update the photo, leaving the old to show the history.
All woods except the hickory and maple core are spalted — which means the wood has been partly digested by fungi, removing mass and strength but leaving pretty lines and colors.
The stabilizing process removes moisture and air from the wood and fills the pores with resin. Heated, the resin cures the spongy, punky wood into blocks that are stronger than the wood was when green.
