To clean I do:

1. Magic eraser with soapy water (water! Oh no, the humanity!)
2. Dry well
3. Sand with...

This is the route I wanted to go in my garage, but the concrete finish was too rough. It'd need a TON of grinding to fix, so I didn't bother.

Should be a very comfortable surface for playing on.

Good deal. The rack looks decent, and it's always nice to have some cues kids can use.

I'd definitely recommend going used. There must be some sort of facebook pool group or similar for your area that you could join. Ask if anyone has a decent LD cue for sale and go from there. Wait...

What? Pay to play. Settle after every set. No way they go home with their cue if they can't settle for cash on the spot.

A few years ago I switched to a lucasi slim 11.75 LD shaft, and started using a break cue just because I didn't trust it to cope with the repeated stress. For the 25 years before that I always broke...

With Aramith, the more expensive sets use better quality resin, with the best being the duramith balls. With Dynasphere, they use the same resin for all their balls. That's why there's such a...

Nah, it actually feels quite smooth. Tried it out yesterday for about 6 hours and it plays good, so that's the main thing anyway. Cue doesn't snag on anything at all, slides nicely on the rail.

The inlays turned out so-so. I mixed black paint with the resin and probably shouldn't have. Good enough for now, but might redo them later.

I went with Canadian dimes cause it's what I had, and it worked sizewise with the best flat bottom drill bit I have.

Glued in and ready for resin:

It had been quite abused, with the laminate peeling and severe chips and
chunks missing.

What is matchroom? I went to their site and it didn't really clear it up for me.
