This is my latest billiard. It has a slight forward cant that I find difficult to capture correctly with the camera, I am trying to implement all the comments and suggestions from the PMF; to improve my technique and form. This is my latest. It is dimensionaly correct in all aspects and measurements.

I have a variety of shapes, straight and bent, bulldogs to zulus, diplomats to Oom-Paul, but sometimes I just need to smoke a straight billiard, of which I have quite a few brands, finishes, and styles. There's just something about the simplicity and boldness of the shape that satisfies my mind.

I don't care for billliards but I must give you kudos for having a good eye for one. We had a contest in KC one time and asked carvers to do a billiard. This contest included many known carvers. Out of 57 entries we had four true billiards submitted. This despite sending out an email telling the carvers what we were looking for.
