The Making of a Pechauer Custom Pool Cue

by Alex Ragle on March 10, 2020

Ever wonder what actually goes into creating a world class, handmade pool cue? You might be surprised to discover the tremendous effort exerted by master cuemakers all around the world.

With every last component made in house, Pechauer is no exception to that rule. 

Quote from Pechauer Custom Cues:

The process begins with a commitment to total quality control, starting with the selection of clear hard-rock curly and birds-eye logs. We cut the logs and dry the lumber in our own specialized kiln. Each cue in the "Professional Series" starts with a select piece of hard-rock maple from which the shaft is born. It is chosen for its exceptional whiteness and grain. To these are married butt sections of birds-eye/curly maple, ebony, cocobolo, and other exotic woods. The ferrule, forearm and butt cap are glued as well as threaded. Gluing and threading ensure that parts never come loose. Inlays are precision fit to eliminate glue lines.


Parts and components, which most cue makers purchase from outside sources, are individually crafted in-house to maintain quality at every step of the hand-crafting process. The shop is atmosphere controlled so moisture levels are consistent throughout the entire assembly.

Each pool cue is flawlessly finished using 8 coats of state of the art UV finish, sanded between coats, and polished to a high gloss shine.

It all comes together, with quality strictly controlled at each step of the way.  Meticulous assembly, precision fit, perfect finish, and a balance and feel that is unmatched anywhere.

This is what is takes to create the perfect J. Pechauer Custom Cue.
