A friend wants to know if I could turn a pool cue for him. My lathe is a midi lathe and not long enough to turn a cue in one piece. Does anyone know where I could get the hardware (I have no idea what it even looks like) to build a two- or three-piece pool cue. Also, anyone know of a tutorial on the web that could explain how to go about this?
For a newbie turner like me this seems like a big challenge and I'm just dumb enough to like a challenge.
EDIT: Just realized, there must be some provision for the weight of the cue, as well. Any thoughts on that?
