Maker of pool cues from 1960 to present in Creston, Iowa.
Bud Harper still lives in the small town of Creston, Iowa, where he was born. In his early years, Bud hunted and fished with his father, and he became interested in guns and building gun stocks. When he graduated from high school, he went to Kansas City school of Art and Design for two years, majoring in three-dimensional design. After school, he became an art director for Midwest Printing Company.
He was always interested in the game of pool. In 1960 he bought his first two-piece cue. Since he had been doing inlay work on gun stocks for years, he decided to do some inlay work on the Willie Hoppe shortly after he got it. Not too long after that, he got another Hoppe and proceeded to inlay it. Bud likes to use gold, silver, ivory, mother-of-pearl, abalone, and other exotic materials. He also will use lizard and snakeskin wrap, if the costomer wants it. He will also put the customer´s name or monogram on a cue to give it a personal touch. Bud´s inlays are usually either round dots, or diamond or rectangular shapes, but he also does intricate scroll designs on his cues.
