Looking for Feedback on A New Pool Cue Rack


Looking for Feedback on A New Pool Cue Rack

I have manufactured a new type of pool cue holder, and need some experienced opinions on it.

The idea is that pool cues are put into the tubes and the structure rotates so that any cue can be reached easily also. the base is made from maple and utile hardwood and tubes from aluminium.

Please leave me a post and tell me what you think. I am looking for feedback on anything involving how it looks, or how it could be improved. Your help would be much appreciated.

Many thanks, Vince

    Well all I can say is wow and well done! it looks very much more unique than the ones I have come across. I like the idea of the tubes and the rotating part. it is also really modern looking unlike the ones at my local club.

    My only issue would be the butts of my cues getting scratched....

    Very very different, I like the rotating idea i've never seen it before.

    The pool cues rack idea is excellent , but the tubes are not looking good, so, please work on it.

    looks great. I know I'm late to your party: looking to make something similar, with pvc pipe. I would be worried about the sharp edges of the alu pipes when inserting the cue sticks: how did that work out for you? My plan is to glue some foam material to the inside/edges, like strips from a yoga mat, etc.

    I suggest the tube tops be more than just filed/sanded/crowned. True, aluminum is a very soft metal but wood is even softer.

    I would be too quick to drop my stick in an aluminum tube, no matter how much chamfer is applied.

    Those washers in the sink where the basket meets the tailpiece could be an adaptation? They would act as a protective grommet of soft plastic, posing no threat to my stick's finish...

    Then again, I'm leaving my stick against a wall between innings or in the case.

    Hard anodize the aluminum after it has been rounder and polished and the scuffing worry will go away.

    WTF is that? Looks like something a 10 year old would throw together.

    @guest - its called a prototype, and he was asking for utility advice.
