When we last left the new rack, it was off to the “finishing room” (i.e., the basement).
Laura stained it and applied 3 coats of polyurethane to it to protect the finish. Follow the link to see the final pictures.
I started building a pool cue rack. Spent several hours playing around creating a ball “tube” on Saturday and then five hours or so on Sunday creating the rack. Here’s a pic of the progress so far:
All of the pieces are cut out (I’m using poplar) and mostly dry-fitted. I still have to rout out some “indentions” for the chalk, brush, bridge, and shorty cue.
The finished rack will be wall-mounted, hold 8 cues, a bridge, a shorty cue, both a nine-ball rack and a standard 15-ball rack, chalk, a brush, and all the balls.
