Here are some pics of mine and a buddies cues made by a local cue maker who has asked not to be named just yet. Don't worry you will know who he is soon enough! Cues hit amazing and the craftsmanship is excellent! Mine is the top one which is 8 points ebony with blue veneers and a reverse cut points in the butt with a segmented ebony handle, the other is 8 points with 4 long ebony and 4 short with snakewood. The handle is AAA birdseye maple and had reverse points as well.

What do you guys think?

Thanks Scott.

If you are in the area for the barbox tourney at Tailgators on January 23-25th you may (if he gets them finished) get to see others first hand. Hope to see you there.

That Birdseye is da bomb!!! Oh wait, it's mine :) Anyone in the Ottawa area for the City Barbox championship, just ask for Snorks for a test drive.

Price - I won't comment right now since it will be up to the cuemaker to make his own deal. For the quality, workmanship and hit, you cannot go wrong. When this guy comes out of the closet, he will have way more cues on back-order than he can handle :)

Those cues look very nice.


Just a suggestion though, if you really want to keep it a secret you should not show the part of the forearm with the "Holtz 2008" showing! I haven't graduated detective school yet, but I think I may have just solved the case!:grin:

The points are little off, but they are very nice indeed. Does he do the veneers and splicing himself?

Yes. And he keeps getting better. I just saw his next 5 and he is definitely learning and getting better with each cue he does.

I was talking about this cue maker last night, totally random from a guy who has never been to the board.

All you have to do is look at the pictures. His name is on them.

I got a chance to see a few of these cues when I was in Ottawa a couple weeks ago...they are really beautiful. The picture shows it but they are even nicer in person. Sorry I didn't get a chance to try any out but I definitely suggest checking them out as soon as someone puts up the contact info! Since the secret isn't out, I will say the cuemaker is a supernice guy!
