McKernan Cue Cases Galore - 05-28-2019, 05:57 PM

Hi All,

Here is a grouping of six McKernan cases from my case collection.
These cases are high on the cool factor scale, and not common in the marketplace so I thought I would share a few pictures.
Most of the lids have chevron-shaped inlay work, and inside the lids all came with a Brad tip scuffer.
Really unique, the wood veneer work is very well done, and the Celtic knot shaped leather handle is special. Interesting, and uncommon.
If others have pictures of their McKernan cases, I strongly encourage you to add your pictures and tell the story of your case!

Very cool Will,

Reminds me of a PVC case I made for traveling that also doubled as a heck of a self-defense tool if needed.

Thanks for sharing.

I believe these were all made in the 1980s. Maybe someone from Seattle area has a better notion?

Here is most of my McKernan collection. Taken many years to collect these and I live in the Seattle area. The Leather case embossed was his personal case.

Most cases were sold at the Old 211 Club in Seattle, also Pat would run ads in the National billiard magazines. When requested he would send info in the really cool envelope and you could order a case from him. 99.9% of them were made with a Oak veneer. In the pictures the first case is the only none Oak veneer one I have seen but it does have a oak veneer top.

They are PVC cases. He was in the green lake area and later moved on Greenwood ave. N. He also made some plain cues for a while and wrote books on how to hustle pool. He did quiet a few different things and was always busy.

Great thread. Thanks for the pics.

I have failed to pull the trigger on several of these I saw for sale and regret it. As a case collector I really think a complete collection should have at least one example. I had no idea anyone focused on these though. My case collecting focuses on Fellini style cases, but I do enjoy others.

I see it mentioned he made cues. I am wondering if anybody can post an example.

Again, thanks for the pics.

I've been looking to buy some tubing like this for a long time.

Does anyone know the specs for it and where to obtain it?

Thanks in advance for any info.

Aloha
