Brought this Rusty Melton case to the pool hall for the 1st time and... - 03-19-2019, 07:29 AM

it was a definite hit - the boys sure did love it and why wouldn't they?

Rusty is an amazing craftsman and a great guy to deal with, as well.

A few years ago when he began making this case for me I asked if he could add just a minor bit of color, something very subtle at the flower centers and he said "I've never done color on a case before but let me see what I can do." Ended up absolutely what I was hoping for with deep-red at the flower centers, executed flawlessly.

Thanks again Rusty; this is a lifetime case for me for sure. You are a true artist!

best,
brian kc

Thanks guys for all the nice comments. Rusty deserves a lot of acknowledgement for the level of quality he puts into his cases.

I'm mighty proud to own one.

Thanks again Rusty!
