Becker: Sandblasted Strawberry Wood Billiard (Four Clubs)
Product Number: 002-007-0763
The firm, jutting heel as well as the forward urging nature of the bowl of this Becker Billiard keep it from feeling stocky, though the proportions of the piece as a whole would otherwise give it that impression. Generous of bowl and chamber alike, with thick insulating walls, this piece stands apart from much of Federico Becker's more petite designs, while maintaining the artisan's signature clean, crisp line work. Crafted from strawberry wood, rather than briar, the craggy sandblasted finish on this piece has brought out some particularly stunning grain — a mix of growth rings and more wild patterns, all dressed in a dark stain that is perfectly complemented by the red-and-black tones of the tapered cumberland mouthpiece. The smooth walnut stained briar along the chamfered rim and shank end provide some tastefully understated contrast to the rest of the stummel's rugged finish.- Jeffery Sitts
