My first cue case! Dont have a planer, so I picked up an 1/8 in. piece of lacewood for the top of the case. It wasn’t quite long enough, so I cut it in two, used it on the ends, filled the excess with basswood, and picked up some fake gator and nail in studs to hide my hack-job! Most of my tools are geared toward heavier construction, so until I can put together a solid, detail oriented set of woodworking tools, there’s a whole lot of adapt, improvise, and overcome going on!

“adapt, improvise, and overcome”. The case looks good!

Wow, nice project. Lacewood is not the easiest of woods to work with

You know, I think I laid the damn case upside-down when I took the pic, the lacewood is on the top of the case!

Have your say...
