My name is Brent Hartman, and I am from Cincinnati, OH. I am 50 years old and worked in construction as a plumber for thirty years.
The old back won't take that kind of physical work any longer, so I got into cue repair around 2003, which led to building cues.
I don't have all the goodies as far as equipment goes , yet. Points and veneers are not in any of my cues as of yet. I get a kick out of doing conversions.
I'm just an old broken down EX plumber looking for a better way to spend my day. I finally found it making sawdust and having a blast doing so.
