Dave Jacoby started doing repairs on cues in 1982. With his son Shane, on a small lathe he purchased from Viking cues, they began tinkering with building cues. Dave continued to build cues as a hobby. In 1996, he incorporated the business with Brandon, changing the company name from Dave’s Cue Service to Jacoby Custom Cues, Inc. Dave quit his job at the local paper mill to take a chance on his dream. In 1998, they moved his shop from his house to a commercial building in the city of Nekoosa, where it is still located today.
