Regarding O'Neil Cases, Mark's operation is small and if you need something immediately, he probably won't be able to accommodate you.

OTOH, if you don't need a case in a week or so, his product is worth the wait as he builds the highest quality box cases. I've been buying cases from O'Neil for more than a year and the quality is top notch. I also own two older 4x8 & 6x6 box cases and what Mark makes today is every bit as good as what he made 15 years ago.

Mark isn't a custom shop per se, but he has done some minor modifications to his stock cases for me.

As for communication, Mark is a tradesman not a secretary, so sometimes he may not return emails immediately and a follow-up email or better yet, a phone call is necessary.

Mark's email is oneilcuecase@att.net

He is old school and doesn't "live" on the internet. This means that he may not respond for a day or two.

I have bought a number of cases from him over the past year. He doesn't have a stock of finished cases, most everything is made to order. In my experience, he usually delivers something to my door within 2-3 weeks and what I have received is perfectly finished and of A1 quality,

They are Oneil Box cases...I don't have any pictures, but I am sure if you do a search on AZ they will come up. Also, you can call him and I am sure he will send you pictures.

Any chance you fine folks with these box cases from Mr. O'Neil can post a few pics so we can see what they look like including a few interior shots? Thanks!

The case shown in this link is typical of an O'Neil case.

http://forums.azbilliards.com/showthread.php?t=218458

I believe they come in configurations from a 1x1 all the way up to the dealer case which is a 12x12.

I've purchased 2x2's, 2x4's, 4x8's, 6x6's, 12x12 dealer case, as well as a 20 cavity dealer case that only holds butts. Some of my cases were made extra long and they are available with or without a storage area.

Interiors are generally black but I have one he made in green as well as a special order he made for me with a white interior.

Some people claim the older cases were nicer, but I have both new and old O'Neil cases and can't see any difference in any aspect of them. A well-known dealer in high-end cues recently told me these were one of the best cases in which to safely store cues and that they should be stored on end with butts and tips down.

I find Mark easy to work with but he has very few if any cases ready to ship. Most are made to order and dependent upon which wood boxes he has on hand from his supplier. I believe he works alone but may have another helper in the shop. I'm not sure.

He generally gets a case to me in a couple of weeks or sometimes longer if he is waiting on wood boxes to be delivered.
