@duc996  That is some superb craftsmanship and outstanding design!  Thank you for sharing!

What's the substrate for the trim panel that has the birdseye maple inlay work?  Is the surrounding figured wood veneer?

Thanks, Mike A.

That is beautiful!!  A year ago I was searching for inspiration to build something similar for a family member, but I came up short on ideas and plans (and I'm creatively challenged) and never moved anywhere with it (since this family member still doesn't have a pool table - there is no timetable for me).  I love the details and the execution, my favorite is the choice of walnut for the top part and the inlay work you did.

Thank you Mike, the heavy figured walnut is solid stock and not veneer. The trim is curly maple and walnut sandwiches together.

Wow, that’s a well executed project.  You could probably make a couple more & easily sell them online.

duc996,

Will you go into more detail on your finish. How long after the oil did you apply the poly and how many coats of poly? Thanks.

Project looks superb.

Hi John, I applied a single coat of Watco danish oil and let dry for 48 hours and sprayed 5 coats of polycrylic satin finish with light sanding with 400 grit paper between coats. Hope that helps.

So am I (as well as of the cabinet, BTW). And even though it is veering off topic, I would like to know why they are being stored in half. Half - heh - the point of a cue rack is not having to disassemble them.

Hi Jim, good question. I don't think there is any good answer to that question. I have a cue rack at my house where I keep all my one piece house cues in for guest when they come over and play and I keep my personal cues in my case and bring them out for my own use. All of my playing cues are two piece and it is easier to transport for when I go out and shoot at a pool hall.
    The cues you see in the cabinets are all custom cues with some cues having up to four shafts for each cue. I think they look better stored broken down in my opinion. Hope that answered your question.

Hi, I wanted to share a cue cabinet I built and installed for a customer. Cabinet is built using black walnut for the carcass and trim and birdseye maple for the doors. Inlay for the top trim is curly maple with walnut in the center. Sliding dovetails for the joinery is used throughout the build. Overall height is 42 1/8" x 6" deep in center breakout section x 42" wide. Side sections are 4 1/4" deep. All the doors have no door handles and use touch latches to open the doors. French cleat is what I used to hang the cabinet. For the finish I used danish oil and then sprayed polycrylic. I regret not taking photos during the beginning of the build. Thanks for looking.

This is really high grade work and I congratulate you on the beauty of it all.

Now a confession...

I spent 2 years of my early life as a professional snooker player (I played a little bit of Pool too). But, I was not good enough to stay on the gravy train but lived a very comfortable life in a smart bit of London until I realised that I had to find a proper job. I had a hand made cue, made to measure (3 fittings to get it right) and I even had a frame with Fred Davis (that tells you how long ago it was).

I thought it was because of the really nice wainscoting below the cabinet.

Cheers. Bryan.

Hmmm, seems to me he has too many cues and not enough Festool’s. Maybe we need some intervention here.

No - I sold my cue when I got married - too busy with woodwork now.
