Tom Eltang: Smooth Billiard with Bamboo
Product Number: 002-299-0655
Up until around 2015, Billiards from Tom Eltang were a very rare sight. Since then, well, they may not be tremendously common, but he has sent more our way in the past two years than he did in all the years previous together. Thus far he's seemed to favor the straight Billiard over the bent Billiard, as far as numbers go, but oddly enough very few of the straight Billiards have sported bamboo — odd, I say, since Tom certainly isn't shy about combining bamboo with a straight Poker.
Tom may not be turning these out often, but I will say he's been making them worth the wait for one, with neat lines, pale bamboo, and killer grain matched to lovely contrast stains.
