The simplest pool cue shafts are simply turned on a lathe following a template to produce the 13 mm or 14 mm tip, followed by the taper, and then to the mating surface to the butt. The proper mating insert is selected and the shaft is drilled and it is inserted. The tip is applied, the tip properly turned and shaped, and the shaft is complete. In most cases, the shaft is finished with the butt however.

Hang the pool cue from a hook where it will remain undisturbed for a few weeks. This can be speed up by steaming the cue cue to loosen the wood. Steaming in small locations can be used also to reduce mild dents that may have occured from dropping the cue. The shaft of a pool cue can get warped either as a result of the wood and its condition as the cue was made, or as a result of improper handling and storage. Alwasy store the cue as vertically as possible, never lean them against a wall.
