I'm a long time member of the APA and currently hold the rank of 6 in 8 and 7 in 9 ball. I love antiques that relate to billiards and purchased a 9' Wendt table in 2018 and I am restoring it.
I also like wood working and started WAF Custom Cue Cases. I make 1-off, hand made wood cases per your design. And before you ask... Yes they are expensive.
I live outside of Chicago and own a 69 Dodge Super Bee.
