Last spring I was ask to be on a traveling pool league. A five man team like bowling! Most of the guys I knew. You have a home table (Brighton VFW) and play roughly half your games away! Since everyone has their own stick you need someplace to put them when your not shooting! One of the guys ask me to come up with a solution! It fits against a round or flat edge table and is my first inlay work. Birdseye Maple, Brazilian Cherry, Maple, Cherry and Mulberry.

i used to do the pool teams ,

With a stick rack like that you put the other team on the defensive and score a big psychological advantage.

Very nice design, wood choice and inlay…

Have they asked you to make sticks to match?

gorgeous…what a great solution—-my first thought was: “What prevents it from sliding back?” and then I saw the underside tabs (?).

Great idea!

Great design! I miss pool playing, played APA 8&9 ball. I was a skill level 7 in 8 ball & an 8 in 9 ball before I quit. Our team made it to Vegas a few years. Is that a Schon cue? Looks like that or maybe a Viking.
