Possible to Inlay Objects In A Custom Cue Butt?


Possible to Inlay Objects In A Custom Cue Butt?

For the longest time I've wanted to have a dead scorpion inlayed into acrylic and displayed on the butt of a cue, below the wrap.  

Do you see this as possible?  Any reasons that I shouldn't?  

Will the acrylic distort the viewing of the scorpion or will it fall off as it isn't part of the whole cue and will be glued on?

Also, how crazy can one get with his designs?  I'd like to do some stuff with curved lines as opposed to straight lines and angles. Is this incredibly difficult for a cue maker to do?

    Your scorpion idea sounds cool.

    I remember you talking to me about the scorpion idea before.

    I don't know how big your scorpion is, but when I was at Dennis Dieckman's shop, one of his trademark cues has an Indian head nickel inlayed into the butt with the clear stuff over it.

    I forget what the material is called, but it's the same stuff that Dufferin cues have over their maple leaf logo

    So, in short, I think it's very possible to do, and might be kinda fun actually. If I was to try something like that, I would cut out a rectangle in butt, however, it would take better equipment than what I have to cut an outline of a dead scorpion.
