Default Mariani Custom Cues

When everyone else is sleeping, sometimes I lay out pieces of wood, then just stare at them. Now and then, I may rearrange some. This often goes on for a while.

Finished the custom joint extension for Robert Newkirk. Yes, I took a lot of pictures! My little guy is going to go off to Texas, so Iíll only have these to remember him by...

Default Mariani Custom Cues

It was last year at the Expo that I was ready to pull the trigger on my first high end custom cue. After walking around for days, I went to the ATM and for some reason my card wasnít working. I thought at the time that problem would save me some money, but as we all know now that was far from the case, since this new hobby is far from a cheap one.

I came home with ideas on what I liked in a cue, all which would be forgotten. Those ideas have been replaced with doing the more simple tasks correctly. Now Iím back and will soon be dreaming big again. But this time Iím not in the market for a cue.

A friend brought me this victim of domestic abuse and asked if I could do anything to make her whole again.







As you can see, during the process, I added my own version of a Hoppe ring, which matches really well with my ringwork, so I will eventually put it on one of my next sneakies.

Just came home to this. I sure am glad I got this leather cover. Everything was dry underneath it!
