I LOVE CUES

I still don't know why I get started making cues.
I got dark Appalachian maple from Abe Rich (Star Cue) in Jan 2009.
This maple was natural air dried wood from 18-19th century, Abe got this treasure woods from original Star cue in New York around 50's. Then he moved to Miami FL, open Star Cue again by himself.

In 2008 summer time, I visited his shop twice in Miami while he was alive. I asked him to sell his woods, but his answer was "I only sell these woods to cue maker. If you don't make cues, how you know these woods is so special !!" He was very stubborn...

I got a call from his relative at the end of November. He told me Abe passed away Nov, 25th. And asked me I wanted his woods or not. I didn't expect this story... I was crying... and I said "Yes, I want them all."
Here is the whole story I got his treasure woods. After I got his woods, I asked to buy this dark natural air dried wood to my cuemakers, but nobody wanted !!
I couldn't understand why nobody wanted... so I sent all those woods for storing at AZ, then started to assort everything by myself. I spent almost 4months to do that... while I was working on to do that. I felt Abe's smiling above me... with his voice, "I sell my woods only to cue maker. Lucky, Make a cue, Make a cue..."

I finished my first work at the end of 2012, and showed it to Ernie. My son and I got special lessons from him, twice.
From outside looking, my cues are totally different with Ginacue, but I use same technique of his. Ernie, Thanks a million !!
