Another cue case for the collection, had some leftover Mahogany veneer, thought I might try some different shapes on the inlays. Still trying to master that! Large, simple shapes are fairly easy for me, but I’d really like to learn how to cut veneer well enough to do some real detail work. Say, gothic lettering, things like that. Oh well, practice makes perfect, huh? These cue cases are starting to pile up here, so if any of you pool shooters out there are in need of a nice case, make me an offer! Still got all three pictured, plus a couple more!

Beautiful job. I like the hinges too.

Very nice pool cue cases. Makes my simple round case look bad. Ever thought about making a pool cue? There are some good plans on page 66 of the July/August 1986 – Issue No. 59 of ‘Fine Woodworking’

Hey seamius, how did you do your interior?? I am thinking about building a case and need some direction. Also…where did you find your hardware at? Any info you have is much appreciated…I would PM you but I don’t have enough posts :/

Have your say...
