Yeah, it's Brian again. Here he is holding two of his latest creations which still need final sanding and polishing. He actually did a pretty good job putting the finish on. We'll see how he does sanding them this time. Overall, not bad for a future Master. He's doing just fine now that he is taking his time. These cues may actually be salable (assuming he stays on course). :-) Now, he wants to know when he can make cues with points and veneers. He has yet to master doing sneaky pete's but soon enough we'll have him doing more complex cues. The lesson here is start off with simple projects and when that is mastered, then move up to more complex designs.
Ok, enough about Brian. Here we are showing three methods of finishing a cue. The first is using Thin Cyanoacrylate. The second is using a Finishing Epoxy and Cyanoacrylate. The third is using a Water Borne solution. All three work well and you can achieve a nice glossy finish. There are other sections showing proper sanding techniques and showing the actual finishing station. We do hope you enjoy this section and have gained more information into building cues.
