JUSTIS CUES
Maker of pool cues from 1991 to present in Coconut Creek, Florida.
Jack Justis has loved to play pool since he was a boy. Growing up in a small town, his parents did not want him in the local pool hall because they felt that it was kind of a seedy place. While he was there Jack always had an eye out for his father, and would sneak out the back door if he saw his father looking for him. The more they tried to keep him away, the more time he spent there.
As an adult, Jack went to work for Chris-Craft. He still liked to play pool, but spent more time fishing. He also spent a little time on woodworking projects. Jack left Chris-Craft after eighteen years, and started making fishing rods for enjoyment. Three years after starting, he entered an international fishing rod competition, sponsored by The American Fishing Tackle Association, in Las Vegas, Nevada. Jack won first place in the saltwater division, and first place in the freshwater division. He later gave seminars in rod building and became a master at thread art. Some of his wraps can be seen in the first edition of the Blue Book of Pool Cues.
When he needed a new case for his pool cue, Jack decided to make one. A friend saw the case as it was being made, and started hounding Jack to sell it to him. Jack gave in, and ended up selling the next case before it was done too. Soon Jack was in the cue case business. Within that year he made his first cue as well. Jack has never done any inlay work on cues, but he has used thread art for the wraps. He has created pictures, designs, and even text from wraps of woven multi-colored threads.
Jack now makes about three batches of five cues a year, at his leisure. He starts with nice old full-spliced Brunswick one-piece cues. He adds joints and rings, threads on capped ferrules, tapers the shafts, sometimes adds wraps, signs and dates them, then finishes the cues. Jack spends more time making Jack Justis Custom Cue cases out of a variety of exotic skins and hand tooled hides. He got tired of making fishing rods, and has not made any since 1993.
Jack also notes that due to his cue case business taking up a majority of his time, he is no longer spending much time making cues.
