i made this for a dear friend. he had a case which he used on a regular basis….he kept it safe in his car untill his tool box landed in it and it redesigned it permently.. so i made this box to to give his cue a new home…the main body and internals from some reclaimed teak… the sun rays are paduke inlayed and i reused the hinges and cliips.. finished with danish and several coats of a hard wax.

What did you use for the corners- butt joints, dovetails, etc? Very nice case and good use of existing materials and parts. I think something like that would be great for a custom fishing rod. Hmmmmmm!

Very nice Cue Case! BUT! I can’t have one like that until I can run the Table at least three times in a row…LOL..

So. We have Hunters, Fisherman, Pool Players probably an etc. or two. I think we should start a New Forum on Sports! i.e. the kind we play NOT the “My Favoriet Team” thing. Maybe a seperate one for Fishing. There’s bound to be a LOT of “The One That Got Away” in that one….LOL… Just Kidding People.

“he has always been there for me and he deserves it anyway….the world could do with more like him.i know i sound soppy but he is a bloody good friend and they can be hard to find.” Good for you jj! You got that right!!

I’m sure He probably feels the same way about you.

I had One Of The Same for 35 Years. He lost his 2 Year Battle with Cancer last year. It’s left a Large Void BUT… The Memories will ALWAYS be there.
