Just for the fun of it I wanted to make something for myself that I would actually use. I shoot pool in the
APA league one night a week so I made this case for my stick. Originally was planned for one stick but realized I could fit 2 although I have yet to acquire a 2nd break stick…....I had the walnut burl veneer left over from another project. Used dyed veneers for the balls purchased from Peachtree…..Came up with the graphic on my own and always trying to get a 3d effect…..Also, it’s surprisingly light weight compared to the leather cases…..Maybe maximum overkill for a cue case but I had fun doing it.

That is beautiful! I love the detail and craftsmanship. Holding two is a bonus. Wondering what your selling price will be?
