How It’s Made. ~ Kim Walker {Part 4}

This is part four of Kim Walker’s pool cue “How It’s Made” series—read parts onetwo, three-A, and three-B to round out your knowledge. (There will be six parts in total, published on a staggered schedule.)

Now that we have the material to fill the slots in the ring billets, we have to make the billets. The material veneer sandwich measured .245 inches thick. We will cut the slots .245 inches wide, and just wipe the veneer strips on a piece of 220 sand paper to make them a nice fit.

A piece of black Juma is glued on a dowel and mounted in the CNC machine to cut the grooves for the veneer strips.
