BOURQUE CUSTOM MADE CUES
Maker of pool cues from 1971 to Present in Sandusky, Ohio.
Douglas Bourque has been making cues part-time since 1971. After replacing tips for local players, he decided to apply his experience with machine tools to the art of cuemaking. Since his early cues are not marked, they can be difficult to identify. Cues made since early 1997 will have a "fleur-de-lis" logo on the butt cap. Doug has been constantly improving the design of his cues. He was an excellent player as a teenager, but stopped playing consistently until 1996.
Doug specializes in one-of-a-kind custom cues, which have usually taken from four to six weeks to deliver. He only likes to make a limited number of cues per year, so he has not advertised. Instead of accepting orders for special designs, Doug prefers to create his own designs, which he offers for sale when completed. Since retiring from his full-time job at Ford Motor Company in 1993, Doug is able to spend six days a week in his shop. Doug did all of his work by hand, until 1997, when he added CNC machinery. With his CAD-CAM equipment, Doug is able to make much fancier cues than before. Doug makes all his cue components except the stainless steel joints and inserts. Now that he is creating more intricate cues, he is only producing about 20 cues per year.
Bourque cues are guaranteed indefinitely against construction defects that are not the result of warpage or abuse. If you have a Bourque cue that needs repair, or would like to talk to Doug about the design of a one-of-a-kind custom cue, contact Bourque Custom Made Cues, listed in the Trademark Index.
