To clarify, I think the spelling is Scepter Cue (not Septor).
I believe they were made from an engineered wood called DymondWood® (not "Diamond Wood" as is seen on the post-it note in the photos from the original question).
@Debscue - do you have any reference to the Rathdrum, ID cue maker behind Scepter cues? I can't find anything.
DymondWood® was a trade name for a plywood product made by Rutland Plywood in Rutland, VT. On the DymondWood® brochure, it says:
The name is a "registered trademark of Wood Dynamics Corporation. Rutland Plywood is the exclusive manufacturer of DymondWood®"
From the (now defunct) Rutland Plywood website:
Rutland Plywood Corporation

The company's entire manufacturing facility burned down in 2014, and I think that was the end of the supply.
On August 21st 2014, Rutland Plywood Corp (RPC) suffered a catastrophic fire and lost its entire manufacturing facility. We were relieved that there were no injuries during the fire. The outpouring of community support has been overwhelming and appreciated by everyone it has touched. The future of Rutland Plywood remains uncertain at this time. We will continue to update this website as our plans develop to see what the future holds.
