Ok, so i have read several post on this and have gotten a jist of what people think is ideal. However, i am wanting to build an inwall display case, probably 15 cues and shafts. I know from reading that upright is not the best way to store cues, however they dont display very well on their side :)

So..how bad is it really to store cues upright...not leaning, just straight up and down?

Is there a major problem storing/displaying the cues ina basement? My basement is dry, but stays on the cold side..cool in summer colder in winter. It is heated so when i say cold i dont mean that really cold.

Thanks for any advice.

Thre was a guy on the forum who was making such a display case, hopefully one of the member who has one will post photo for you.

It is already finished, just wondering what the overall effects of storing cues upright, and being in a dry yet cold basement might be.

i think as long as what ever's holding them upright is holding them by the forearm and not the shaft you should be ok.

you might want to invest in a dehumidifier just incase

I personally don't think you will have any problems as long as it is not too hot or too cold. Mine stays about 60 some degrees and is dry like yours. I haven't had any problems with my cues. Haven't had any problems with them being upright (straight) either.
