Maker of pool cues from 2000 to present in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
James White knew Paul Mottey from playing pool in the Pittsburgh area. Jim ordered a cue from Paul in the late 1980s. When the cue was taking longer to complete than Jim had hoped, Paul invited him into the shop so he could see how time consuming cuemaking is. Jim was always interested in making cues so he started helping Paul in the shop part time in January of 1992. He started off finishing cues and slowly learned all of the steps necessary to make a pool cue. Jim worked on and off, part time and full time, until 1999 when he bought 49% of Mottey Cues.
Today Jim makes his own cues alongside Paul in their shop in Pittsburgh. He enjoys making one-of-a-kind custom cues designed by customers. Jim makes everything in his cues except for the tips, screws, and bumpers. He tries to make cues with a stiffer hit. Jim has either signed his cues with the month and year since he began or his initials "JMW" will appear on the cue. He hopes to continue the business if or when Paul retires.
Paul and Jim hope to move their shop to "Breakers," the pool room they opened together as equal partners in 2003. It is about a mile from their current shop.
James White cues are guaranteed against manufacturing defects that are not the result of warpage or abuse to the original owner.
