Sorry to hear you're hanging it up Bill, but you've been at it a long time and established yourself as a premier cue maker.
Best to you in whatever you do from here on!

Dammit!!!!! what a time to be laid off !!!!

Even as much as I want to start building cues I just dont have the disposable cash right now, but I have passed the word on to a few people that d0 have the means. Are you going to offer any instruction (like 3 or 6 months as I have seen others do) with the purchase??

I have never played with a Josswest, but have read a lot on them, Bill, & the history. I'm sure this decision has been stewed over for months & was not rash. With that I wish you all the best in everything you do from hear on out.

Are you going to continue attending any cue maker related events? I am just sorry that I never got to meet with you. It seems with my interest in wanting to eventually becoming a cue maker, a lot of the premier "old schoolers" are retiring. But I guess thats the way it goes with every generation of anything, so I will look forward to the "new schoolers" that I have a chance to meet and speak with.

Again, best of luck to you Bill

I guess you are finally retiring from the cue business and joining the ranks of us FROGs. (F***ing Retired Old Geezers) I'll bet you have some projects to keep busy with even if you are not building cues. Best wishes from one of your old Cotton Palace buddies.:thumbup:

I plan on playing pool.

It is what I do best.

If you play pool better than you build cues, Look Out everyone. I've heard that you were a very good player and you should have plenty of time to play if you retire from cue making. I wish you the best of luck......
