Robinson Cues have long been recognized for
their originality and consistently accurate inlay work. Because they
work with a manual pantograph machine instead of a CNC machine, much
more time consuming hand craftsmanship is involved. From the hand
fitting of inlays to hand carving of points, making it right is
always the priority. Just as important as the inlay work are the
jigs they make which are used to cut out the inlays. Depending on
the complexity of the pattern, a single jig can take days to make.
Another area also very time consuming and unique to Robinson Cues,
is the dying of ivory. This process involves a special application
technique along with a lot of patience. Depending on the color and
the ivory it can take up to 5 hours to dye a cue. Since pictures
don't capture the cues beauty or craftsmanship properly, seeing one
in person is really the only way to appreciate it.
