Mark Tinsky: Mocha Bent Billiard with Bocote (5) (Two Star)
Product Number: 002-035-0800
This bent Billiard from Mark Tinsky displays a lively interpretation of the classic shape, with a paneled, almost completely straight shank and a quickly downturned saddle stem. A chestnut stain and smooth finish highlight striking flame grain, while a thin black accent band and handsome bocote hardwood adorn the shank end for contrast. Of particular interest to me are the subtle ridgelines that run down the shank, easing slightly lower as they approach the mouthpiece to keep a delicate balance between a curved and straight aesthetic. It is easy to see why the American carver awarded this piece his Two Star grade, and it will make a striking addition to any rotation.-Joel Balyeat
